I am trying t figure out what the code is to test for dates.

Basically, I am trying to populate three labels with text which is triggered on load and by two dates, so something like

if today() is greater than or equal to 3\23 and less than or equal to 10\1 then
label1.text = "have a nice summer" else if..

etc etc, I want to do this about five times covering the whole year, each and every year.

You can use the code below (just create a datetime for the dates you want to compare - I used the System.DateTime.Now.Year to always use the year of the current date)
        If System.DateTime.Now > New DateTime(System.DateTime.Now.Year, 3, 23) And _
           System.DateTime.Now < New DateTime(System.DateTime.Now.Year, 10, 1) Then
            MessageBox.Show("Have a nice summer")
        Else
            MessageBox.Show("Have a nice winter")
        End If
