Despite the fact it’s still mega-cold outside, it’s officially spring. Spring is one of the more enjoyable seasons for everyone. I guess there might be some people out there who don’t like spring, but I can’t see why anyone wouldn’t like it. It’s just too nice of a season to hate.
1.) Warmer weather.
Well, I don’t think New England has gotten the message quite yet, but just knowing that in the next few weeks we’ll have warmer temperatures is enough to get us to push through.
2.) My birthday.
Who doesn’t love the season their birthday falls in? Well, unless you really hate winter and you’re a winter baby… I can see why. I know I would. Thankfully mine falls in a nice season and it’s later in the season when the temperatures get into the high 60’s and mid-70’s.
3.) Flower beauty.
Even though I get major stuffy noses when I smell the flowers, I can’t help but love how pretty the flowers look when they blossom.
4.) Light sweatshirt weather.
Even though most of the time we can get away without wearing a sweatshirt, I still enjoy wearing my lighter sweatshirts and jackets to keep the chill of the spring breezes away. It definitely beats a winter jacket.
5.) Longer days.
Thanks to Daylight Savings Time the daylight hours are a bit longer than they are in the winter. It’s a wonderful thing to look out my window at 7:30pm and still be able to see outside.
6.) Open windows.
There’s nothing like fresh air in a home that’s been closed up for the winter. It makes it easier to breathe at night and it’s comforting to hear the animals outside again.
7.) Spark of life.
Let’s face it, winter kills everything, including our moods. Once spring comes people tend to be happier and healthier, aside from the allergies, and you see more activities going on outside. I for one love watching my fellow classmates playing frisbee or football out on the campus green.
