Quick Summer Poll

Tell me...

"Lightning bugs" or "Fire flies"?

When I grew up, we called them "lightning bugs"...

We never had any where I grew up. I think I've always referred to them as fireflys.

My husband remembers calling them lightening bugs.

The first time I ever saw some, was while we were living in Massachusetts. I was about 27 years old, but our daughter was about 3 and she LOVED them! She knows them as fireflys.

Fireflys . . . we used to catch them and put them in jars AND we used to take them and write our initials with their fluorescent glow! Eeewww!

I grew up in Indiana, where they are in abundance, especially in June and July. We called them by both names.

I have to go with fireflies. The first time I ever saw one was when I moved to Virginia.
