Happy Spring!

March 20

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 20 of March, repeating indefinitely

Happy Spring! 🌸🌷🌱 Today marks the vernal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and is one of two days within the year during which the sun is directly above the equator and day and night are of equal length.

Did you know? Spring was a season of new beginnings in more than one way for colonial Americans – traditionally, the new year was celebrated around this time, as Americans marked March 25 (the Christian Feast of the Annunciation) as the start of the new year.
