What is szn short for?


Szn is a common abbreviation that describes a time of year, a phase in a person's life, or the current moment. You may see szn in various places, including in texts and online, especially on social media, when talking about a sports season or a phase in life (similarly to the era term).

For example, your friend may text you a selfie with her new haircut and say, "its bangs szn!!!" Or, your friend may post a picture of himself tailgating a football game on Instagram with the caption, "The air is crisp. I'm so happy it's football szn!"

Origin of szn

The slang term "szn" originated from Kanye West's "On Sight" track from his Yeezus album in 2013. Fans abbreviated his "Yeezy season approaching" lyrics as "YEEZY SZN," and then non-Kanye fans began using SZN (or szn) as well throughout the mid-2010s and later.
