What is it about summer that you wait for?

The long vacation, naturally! Three more weeks and school's out - hey'll be three looooong weeks...

One thing only? The warm sun against my skin...I live for those days all winter long. Going out at night with no coat, swimming in the ocean, hanging out with friends while cooking on the grill (BBQ in other words), going to the beach, fishing, surfing...I could go on for pages! I LOVE SUMMER!!

Tracy, 24

I love the heat of the summer. I am a Texan therefore love the heat. Even when the temp. rises to 115 degrees in August. I love it. I am cold natured so the warm air is wonderful.

Stephanie, 25

The chance to get out of this state as much as possible. And do my Christmas shopping while I'm gone.

Karen, 21

To me, summer is a necessary evil that one must sweat through to get to autumn, which I dearly love.

Reba, 51

I tend to be less busy at work during the summer months, so I can take time off. Often I spend several days with my family in NJ and we go to the shore. I like the hot weather and go swimming when I can at the river or in the ocean.

Laura, 36

Days of comfortable temperatures--between 58 and 73 degrees.

Jill, 60

I just love being able to walk out of the house unencumbered by heavy coats, gloves, hats, scarves, etc. Summer just makes me feel much more free-spirited.

I love moderate summer days with lots of blue sky and sun spent by a mountain lake.

The warmth! I *hate* the cold. I like a hot, humid, sticky day just fine. Sure I prefer it a little cooler, but around here it gets hot and humid and that's just fine with me.

EVERYTHING! No school, nice sunny hot weather, seeing my friends and my boyfriend like 10 times as much, no school, swimming, camping, no school, suntanning.... and did I mention no school?

Dianne, 16
Oshawa, Ontario  CANADA

Lying out on my speedboat, tanning and talking to my sister. Going out to dinner and cruising around with my friends at night. Summer parties and open houses. Making lots of money.

Katie, 25
, FL   USA

Time outdoors - walking in the woods, taking the baby out in the stroller, taking long walks with the dog, going to the park, listening to the birds, watching the squirrels, etc. Mostly though I think I look forward to the warm weather - because without it none of the above are possible.


Warm weather

Well, besides no school, I get to go places and do things without distractions... This summer I'm going to try to do as much as possible before high school, and try to learn something new about myself...

Jeremy, 14

Its arrival -- everything else is a bonus.

Jane, 60
West Linn

The warm weather. I destest the cold and being shut in all the time. I am not what you call an out doors person, but, I in going in and out, such as to and from work, or doing errands etc. I do not want to be cold.

Becki, 49
, OR   USA

It used to be no school. After I moved to SC, it was going home to my mom and dad. Since I moved back to Arkansas this summer, I guess it was going to be doing stuff with all my friends, but since I have a full time job this summer, it's probably going back to SC for a week so I can see my boyfriend.

Angela, 16
