Spring has sprung!

You either love it or hate it. The season of blooming flowers, warmer weather, and new beginnings. For some, it’s the season of rain, allergies, and the dreadful wait until summer. 

When someone asks, what’s your favorite season? The most common answer for people who live in New England is fall. According to an article by Ellyn Briggs from, 41% of adults chose fall as their favorite season, 25% said summer and spring, and 11% said winter. 

Spring is my favorite season of the year. The season has the most peaceful views and awakening weather. The start of spring marks the start of warmer temperatures, and all kinds of new nature. My favorite sights are blooming flowers and the transition from white to green grass. I love looking at the planted flowery decorations people display in their yards, or fields of tall grass with dandelions blooming. 

Gorgeous view! (Ava Franciosi)

One interesting fact I learned about spring in an article by Wanda Duarte, from is that in Japan, they wait until the first blooming of the cherry blossom tree to signify spring has begun. There are so many interesting facts about each of the seasons and the ways different parts of the world celebrate them. Another cool find from the same article was that in Poland, it’s a tradition for people to come together, burn, and toss an effigy into the river to say goodbye to the winter season. 

Spring is the season of rebirth, when all of the flowers “spring” to life and resurface after the winter season. It’s the season filled with holidays, fresh fruits and flowers, bright blue skies, and longer days. Some people argue that spring isn’t the best season because of the rain showers, mildly chilly weather in the beginning, or the high amount of pollen floating around the air. Spring does happens to also be the most common time for allergies. According to AAFA, 81 million people in the US are affected by seasonal allergies. So for people with more severe cases, spring might not be the most enjoyable time of year, while for others it’s more bearable. 

Despite the few cons of springtime- which every season has- as I have already mentioned spring has the most amazing views ever. The colorful animals and birds floating in the sky, the bodies of water that glisten in the sunlight, and rainbows reflecting in the puddles. Spring has everyone thinking of summer. When you can finally drive with the windows down, and go outside for a walk. It’s a big season of reassurance that winter does end, and once the snow melts, summer will be there before you know it.
