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.
Correct: "We'll begin office renovations in the spring." "The office dress code for summer is more relaxed."
"For the past five years, our Celebrate the Spring picnic for employees' families has drawn hundreds."
