Problem: Lisa DiBuono, a legal administrative assistant in Greenwich, Conn., wants to know whether to capitalize seasons.

Lesson: When you're referring to a season, keep it lower case. If the word is part of a formal title, capitalize.

"For the past five years, our Celebrate the Spring picnic for employees' families has drawn hundreds."
