I’ve talked about this before, but people like to capitalize everything. I do not understand this. If you capitalize every single word, then no words stand out! This defeats the purpose of capitalization in the first place. It should also be stated that I am equally as annoyed by people who refuse to capitalize anything. They try to act like not capitalizing “I” is cool.
It’s not cool.
But that’s a post for another day. Today’s grammar tip is an oldie but a goodie, as they say. You can find this rule in Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) 8.87.
Seasons of the year are lowercased. spring. summer. fall. winter.
Lowercased. Every time. Unless, of course, it’s in a title or something. Make your editor friends proud, be smarter than everyone else, and don’t capitalize the seasons.
