A bewildered American woman has been mocked online after revealing that she doesn't understand the seasons in Australia.

TikToker Jenna Lu - who goes by the handle @itsjennalu - confessed that she doesn't understand how the seasons work in the Land Down Under - where it’s currently winter, while the United States is experiencing the tail end of summer.

"I learned recently in Australia, that it's wintertime right now. Right now it's August in America and for you guys it's winter. For me, I think of June, July, and August as summer months," she said.

"So I'm just confused because do you first of all still call it August and second of all, is August, if you do call it that, a winter month for you?" Lu questioned.

Watch Lu's TikTok below:

As August comes right before fall in the US, the confused TikToker wondered if the order of the seasons was different in Australia. She asked Aussies if they were about to enter spring - the season that normally follows winter in the Northern Hemisphere - or if they were entering fall, just like Americans.

In addition to this, she was also stumped about Halloween happening during springtime, questioning if Aussies would be sporting "spring florals during the fall." She also said: "For us in the fall, we have pumpkins and apples because they're in season, but in the spring for you they wouldn't be in season, so do you guys not have pumpkins at Halloween?"

Lu then questioned summer in Australia and how the festive season is observed differently during December, saying: "When you have Christmas, does all of your guys' marketing stuff have Santa Claus dressed in a swimsuit?" adding, "Do you guys still have traditional Christmas food that's like for wintertime? Like hot chocolate?"

"Every time I think about this my brain wants to die because it's so confusing to me, because like everything seems like it would be backward for you guys," she told her followers, before sharing a picture she drew comparing the seasons in the southern and northern hemispheres.

The video has been viewed 1.3 million times on the social media platform, with many viewers left in hysterics by her admission that she couldn't comprehend how winter occurred during the American summer.

One user was bemused by her confusion and wrote: "Does America have schooling?" while another quipped: "Wait until she finds out we’re in the future."

A third jokingly said: "Good question!! You guys call it August, July, and June but we call it Waugust, Wuly, and Wune cos it’s winter xx."

A fourth simply said: "Good lord save us from this suffering please," while a fifth added: "I don’t understand how America isn’t a simulation seriously."

However, Lu's viral clip wasn't a complete fail as Australian TikToker Sarah’s Day stitched her clip and explained that Halloween is an American holiday not typically celebrated on their continent. She also shared that most Aussies "don't care" about seasons or festivities like people from the US do.
