Do you stop making “summer plans” in September?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s TRY social dilemma has to do with the end of summer. Here is the email I received from Joanne.

Hi Jaime. I was wondering what you guys think. I was having a chat with a friend of mine before Labor Day weekend. I feel like Labor Day weekend is the end of summer…period. That’s it, it’s over, put away your summer clothes and take out the sweaters and long pants. No more summer plans at all. However, I have other friends who think that the whole month of September is still summer. They keep their pool open until the end of September (and no it is not heated). They continue to make summer plans. For example, they head to the Jersey Shore in mid-September for a weekend. I don’t understand. I think it’s Labor Day. Summer is over, the kids are going back to school and it’s fall. But my friend says I’m wasting a whole summer month. Is she right? What do you think? Does Labor Day mean the end of summer, or does it feel like there’s still a whole month of summer left? I would hate to think that I missed something just because of the way my brain was programmed as a kid. I’m really looking forward to hearing what others think. Thank you very much Jaime.

It’s so interesting to me. I always thought Labor Day meant the end of summer, but looking at the forecast for the week, it’s going to be beautiful and in the 80s for the next few days. So maybe Joanne’s friend is right. Maybe we still have a month of summer left. But for me, Labor Day has always been the end. We close our pool on Tuesday.

What do you think? Do you think summer is over? Or does it feel like there’s a whole month left? Let me know on TRY’s Facebook page.
