    Nope, not really. Allergy season is right around the corner though. Stock up on Benadryl.

    Yes, those are medications to alleviate the symptoms of allergies. Good job.

    Allergy season is the beginning of Spring. It usually starts in January but is in full swing in February.
    Oh, that sucks. It works wonders for me. Claritin is a decent substitute.

    That's why Spring Break is in March? The date of which Spring starts differs every season. It NEVER starts in late April though. Having Spring start in late April means it would only be significantly shorter since Summer typically begins in June. Spring starts anywhere from February to April. This year it begins Wednesday, March 20 and this is true for the ENTIRE Northern Hemisphere.

    I'm sure I'll be fine when the season comes, and hopefully so will my brother. He usually gets hayfever really bad but if he's stocked up also, then there's nothing to worry about :)

    That depends on the school actually. Some schools have it in March, and I've have mine in April as well.

    Some schools do observe it in April. The very beginning of April and never the need of April.

    Ok? There's obviously some insecurities here to have to continue to argue with facts so I'll drop it. Moving on. Keep it on topic.

    I agree with Ajay.

    Allergies. Hmm. I never can be certain whether I’m sick because of allergies or any of a number of other ailments. Allergy medicine is never that effective for me.

    I get them a lot. Though probably mostly really just sinius’. Either way, pain in the butt. I do take some medicine for it daily though.
