Resolved: Aren't seasons ordinal?
In the video, seasons of year are referred to as "nominal"; since there is a constant order here, can't we say they're ordinal?
Although it's clearly depends on context in some cases, but I guess there is a clear order here.

I think not because you can't say that Summer is (objectively speaking) better than Spring or Winter is better than Summer.
You can however say that someone who won a gold medal on the Olympics is better than the person winning the silver medal (but you can't say how much better based on the medal).
