So, here in New Hampshire, we had one of the coldest winters (or is it Winters) on record, weeks of single-digit and below zero temps.
Then we had April, definitely labeled spring (or is it Spring) on the calendar. It was filled with temps averaging in the 40s.
To say we had a short spring (or is it Spring) is crazy, but, honestly, 80 degrees after weeks in the 40s? I’d say summer (or is it Summer) is here! It’s definitely shorts and t-shirt weather!
To the topic of this post — it’s a common question: Do you capitalize the seasons when writing about spring, summer, winter, or fall?
The short and simple answer is: no.
You only capitalize the season of spring, summer, winter, or fall when it’s part of a title or the name of an event.
You wouldn’t capitalize “spring break,” but you would if it was in reference to, for instance, the event known as”Spring Break 2015: Bermuda Bound.”
- signs of spring are everywhere
- ushering in spring
- shake off the winter blues and celebrate spring
- fall foliage is a few months away
- 2016 Winter Cruise: Sail Away to Hawaii
- Mayberry’s Fall Festival
