Spring is here, and summer is right around the corner. It’s the time of year when we get relief from the cabin fever that may have built up over the winter. Whether you enjoy hiking, going to the beach, gardening, or just enjoying a cool drink on the patio, spending time outside in the sunshine can be good for the body and the soul.

As with all good things, though, spending time outdoors comes with its own particular dangers. It’s important to take precautions during the summertime to safeguard against sunburn, Lyme disease, heat exhaustion and heat stroke, poison ivy, and more.

Over the years, we’ve tried to offer some practical advice to help keep you and your family safe in the great outdoors. Here’s a look at a few timely pieces of advice to read before you head outside for the season:

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
