As the last of the snow melts and the sun returns back to its beloved position in the sky, it's time for all of us to pack away our sweaters and begin to bring out our t-shirts! Springtime brings many great things into our lives, and most importantly, carries people out of seasonal-induced slumps. It's never too early to get excited about the changing of the seasons, especially as spring restores the happiness that may have faded during the grey days of winter.
Here are 7 signs that Spring is quickly approaching:
1. March Madness.
As college basketball teams from all over the country go head-to-head in the highly popularized NCAA tournament, students and fans gather to root for their favorite schools.
2. You've realized that you're sweating in your winter parka.
Although being warm and cozy is essential during the winter months, there comes a time when the parka is no longer needed.
3. Music festival lineups.
Although most music festivals happen during the summer months, as spring approaches so do the ticket sales. By now, most of the major festivals have released their expected lineups for this summer.
4. Chirping birds.
As temperatures begin to rise, birds colonize once again and peacefully greet us with their sweet morning noises.
5. Spring training baseball.
As Major League Baseball has returned to television screens, fans from across the country begin to form their predictions about which organizations are destined for success in the coming season.
6.Daylight hours are longer.
What a feeling, to walk outside in the evening and not see darkness.
7. Driving with the windows down.
While it’s not quite warm enough for air conditioning, it’s acceptable to ride with the windows down and let the cool spring air waft through your car (while you blast happy music through your radio, of course).
