My FAVORITE Day of the Year - March 1st
Ah, when I was young. I loved each of the four seasons. I loved Spring because of the beautiful, long days, the breezes, the freshness of the Spring air.
I enjoyed Summer, because I didn't have to wear a jacket or a sweater and I could wear short sleeves and short pants. I rode my bike everywhere, which we could safely do in that day and age.
My favorite season was Autumn because of the beautiful trees and streams of water. The subdued, almost philosophical air. And the night sky.
Why, I even enjoyed Winter. The cold didn't bother me and I was not the one who had to shovel the snow! Who could ask for more?
THAT was THEN. THIS is NOW.
I hate the Winter. The days are very short. It's cold. The ground is hard. The snow falls on the sidewalks and driveways. Shame on that stuff! Not to mention the awful electric bill!
The only good thing about Winter is when it's over. And tomorrow is HOORAY! March 1st, my favorite day of the year. Yes, my personal favorite. No, the weather usually isn't too Spring-like. The days aren't overly long. The flowers are barely beginning to think of emerging. And it may snow. As a result, there may be power outages.
So why do I especially like March 1st? Because quite often it IS nice weather, and best of all, it is the very beginning of a long stretch of at least somewhat decent weather, running as it does non-stop up until late October. November? Eh... I can take it or leave it. But I'd rather leave it, because on soon comes a quarter of a year of sheer misery, the cold season.
But enough of that... HOORAY MARCH 1st!
