Spring is quickly becoming my new favorite season. I used to think it was fall, but I’m afraid my love of pumpkins has been replaced by my love of all the newness of spring.
Before Spring was called Spring, it was called Lent in Old English. Starting in the 14th century, that time of year was called “springing time”—a reference to plants “springing” from the ground. In the 15th century, this got shortened to “spring-time,” and then further shortened in the 16th century to just “spring.”Reference: Interesting Facts About Spring
