When Does Summer Begin?

By: Mr. Wilson on May 28, 2010
It seems folks have lots of different opinions about when summer begins. When do YOU think summer starts?
  1. Today (the Friday of Memorial Day weekend)
  2. Today after you've finished work/school
  3. Tomorrow (the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend)
  4. Monday (Memorial Day)
  5. June 3 (last day of school for LPS)
  6. June 21
  7. Other
My vote goes for #2. Once you've said adios to work or school and said hello to Memorial Day weekend, that's when summer begins. But that's just me. When do you think summer begins?


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

Mentally, I would say #1 or #2 (if not already). I don’t plan to work very hard today.

Realistically, it seems that in a household with a child at LPS, that it’s #5. 

Of course if I go by the LPS schedule, then in a year or two, summer could end on August 10 or so.

I think of summer as the start of Memorial Day weekend to that last gasp of Labor Day.

Summer for me starts when the NBA finishes it’s interminable season sometime in mid-June.  That is when I start reading box scores and following the exploits of Major League Baseball.
