Some of you may be sitting in the snow today and wondering if Spring will ever get here!
This year in the northern hemisphere the Spring or Vernal Equinox falls on the 20th March. The equinox marks the day when day and night are the same lengths all over the world, with the word equinox literally meaning equal night‚in Latin.
The spring equinox marks the change of the seasons and as the northern hemisphere begins to tilt towards the sun, our days start to get longer and our nights shorter. In the northern hemisphere, we enjoy the arrival of spring and the promise of warmer days. To our friends in the southern hemisphere, however, this marks the changing of their seasons to autumn.
Traditionally, we celebrate the first day of spring on March 21, but astronomers and calendar manufacturers alike now say that the spring season starts on March 20th, in all time zones in North America. And in 2020, it’s even a day earlier than that—something that hasn’t happened since 1896.
And that is great news for you in the north! But does that mean it is going to be a longer Summer for us in Florida, ugh!
And keep an eye out for some new Spring scents!!!
