The seasons can be mirrored to Christ's life. At the spring, all things begin to grow and seeds are planted and then sprout into plants. During the summer the plants grow into full maturity. This is similar to Christ's birth, and life. Christ came into the world not in great garb or royal majesty, but in the lowliness of a manger.
Then comes the Fall. The time when all things begin to die and to prepare for the winter. This is similar to Christ's death. "He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him." (see Isaiah 53:5) Christ paid the ultimate price for us. He lived a perfect life, and thus was able to pay the price for our sins.
