Facts, Figures & Folklore
About Spring

March 19 : 01 day till Spring begins

Did you know that doctors now believe that spring fever — a colloquialism for that giddy burst of energy experienced when temperatures rise — is actually rooted in brain science?

Since the springtime brings longer and brighter days, we are exposed to more light. That light exposure triggers our brains to release less melatonin, the brain chemical that makes us sleepy in the winter, and more seratonin, a mood-elevating neurotransmitter. Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: Spring fever is the perfect cure for the winter blues.

Ah, spring. The snow fades away, the temperatures warm, and the days grow blissfully longer. The lovebirds are happily cooing in their new nests; and the daffodils and tulips are blooming. This year, get yourself ready to spring into springtime with our fun-filled spring trivia.

This is our last “Did You Know?” fun fact for Spring, which begins tomorrow March 20th!
