Apparently the reason that we call spring “Spring” is that around the 14th century English speaking people started referring to it as “springish time,” because of the way that plants would sort of spring up from the ground.

Which is incredible, and I love it.

Eventually that was shortened to the more familiar “spring time,” and now “spring” is just the official word for this time of year. But no word can quite encapsulate the way spring makes us feel. It’s a sensation that’s just so…springish.

Get your springish on with these springy memes.
