A new survey finds:

  • 40% of Americans say summer is the season they look forward to the most.
  • 63% of people say they wish summer lasted longer.
  • A third of those people would be okay with it lasting an additional two months.
  • 55% of people say they plan to remain in summer mode even after the season is over.
  • For 24% of people, January is when they start missing summer the most.
  • Things folks miss most about the summer once it’s over include:
    • Warm weather (52%)
    • Wearing fewer layers of clothes (45%)
    • Summery fruit (38%)
    • Barbecues (34%)
    • Eating ice cream (33%)
  • But summer does have to end, and many people have big plans for how they plan to close out the season.
  • 63% say they will see their family and friends one last time, probably until the holidays.
    • 31% will say goodbye to summer with one last barbecue.
    • 30% will go to the beach.
