Now don’t go getting your gears all in a jamble; Daylight Savings Day isn’t until March 14th at 2:00am EST, so you can relax. For those of you who are planning on complaining about losing one little hour of sleep for one little night, you can stop. Think about all the other ways you probably lose an extra hour of sleep on any other day of the week. Like doing this. Or this. Or hopefully this. Yep, linked to myself on that last one. After biting the bullet for one night, we get an extra hour of daylight for THE NEXT 8 MONTHS. Try something called “delayed gratification” on for size.

A few days later, March 20th, is the official first day of spring, but here in DC spring always comes a few weeks earlier. One week we have a foot of snow, the next gaggles of people are out and about running, jogging, biking, flugtagging. Ehhh might have made that last one up. What I’m trying to say is DC’s an active town. And the activity has begun, whether or not spring has springed.

So in the spirit of the spring season that’s upon us, I’ve put together a complication of seasony-titled jams for summer, fall, and winter. Spring doesn’t have a song yet, so readers, you have 9 days to pick one! Only rule? It has to have the word “spring” or a variation of it in the title. Start commenting with your suggestions and we’ll declare a winner on the day of the equinox.
