You know you have it when youíre ready to ditch sweaters and pull on (yikes!) a swim suit. Sure it might still be barely above freezing outside, but you know you smelled a hint of spring in the air. And with that hint (real or imagined), Spring Fever comes with untold fury.

Spring Fever

For those unaware, Spring Fever is a condition that affects us near the end of winter. Dark days and cold weather make us long for sunshine and short sleeves. The smell of grass and dirt can force us to race to mall in search of cute new flip-flops and the first only mostly-cold wind of year makes a girl long for a pair of shorts. Well, maybe just a windbreaker, but whatever.

Curing Spring Fever

If youíve got the itch of Spring Fever, there is no cure but to scratch it. Granted, we tend to experience Spring Fever well before you could actually say that spring conditions have arrived. So while you might be dying for a new bikini, hold off on the beach until the ice caps have melted at least.

Get a Pedicure

If youíre just dying to feel like spring is here, go get a pedicure. A pedicure is a statement that youíll be showing your toes, and you canít show your toes in snow boots. If you donít have a favorite pair from last year, buy a pair of new flip flops or sandals to show off your new toes. Just wear them around your house if thatís the best you can do.

Ready the Spring Wardrobe

Warm weather may be a month off, but you can get ready now. Throw open the closet doors and go through your old spring wardrobe. Try on all your old clothes from last year to see what still fits and what is totally out of style. Make a pile for donation and then bring your mom up to see your now almost empty closet. Surely she will get the urge to shop (which is also a nice spring activity) and the two of you will rush right out to find the latest fashions to be ready for the first warm days of the year.

Open the Windows

So if youíre totally broke and your mom didnít play along, you can still feel spring-like. Throw open the windows to get a breath of fresh air. Okay, if itís snowing you might wait a week or two, but the minute the air temperature is tolerable, crack the window to let the fresh air of spring inside. Breathe deeply and day dream about warmer weather outside.

Go for a Walk

Or just go outside and experience it yourself. If youíre convinced spring is right around the corner, why not go look for it? Take a walk and see if any signs of spring are evident. Look for flowers, leaf buds on trees and melting snow. Take deep breaths to smell (or pretend to smell) the fresh air of the season. Of course, if youíre wearing snow shoes on your walk, you might have a few more months to go to smell anything that might be anything but winter.

1) i will never get a pedicure they are for sissys

2) i do not care what the fashion is for spring as soon as winter is over i wear cutoffs and tanktops

3) i am to active to just "take a walk" ill take a run maybe but not a walk

Nice article. Unfortunately, it's so nice that my friend wanted to post a comment on it. And since she's 12, she can't and yadda, yadda, yadda.

So here's mraquelshaw's comment:


Don't do this to me. I can't use any of this spring stuff until June. You wunna know why? It's because there's still THREE FREAKIN' FEET OF SNOW ON THE GROUND (and that's not an exaggeration because that's EXACTLY what my dad said, PLUS it still snows everyday)!

Maybe once June rolls around and all of the other sates are in their bikinis, I'll be able to dig out this article and put it to good use.


Sheesh, drama queen much?

Anyway, as for me, spring has already come, and I have gladly invited it!
