Spring Fever is an annual condition that strikes everyone in the world of Beldeen. For a week everyone goes a bit crazy. Everyone has always prepared for it. No one expects to get any productive work done.
Now there's a cure for Spring Fever. But this is tradition! It's natural Beldeenian biology! Sure some things still need to get done during Spring Fever. Kids need fed. Fires need put out. Prisoners need watched. But there's pressure for everyone to take the cure and stop being so foolish for an entire week.
Write a scene, a short story, even a poem :-), with characters on either side of the issue. (You can decide how crazy "a bit crazy" is.)
