Spring is finally here! After months of winter, we can finally look forward to bright flowers, trees in bloom, and high pollen counts (maybe that last one isn’t so great). We’ve been waiting three months to get to this point – maybe even longer for the people who encountered an early winter – and we’re glad it has arrived at long last. Most of us are safely beyond no-warning snow days and ice storms, and some parts of the country already have daffodils and tulips poking through the soil already.
So what do we know about the spring equinox, aside from the increasingly warmer weather it heralds? We’ve put together a list of spring basics for anyone who’s interested – and a collection of related auctions to celebrate the arrival. Does the solstice always arrive on the same day every year? What is the Southern Hemisphere equivalent to the first day of spring? Read on, and you’ll find out.
Spring Info to Know
- Typically, the vernal equinox arrives on March 20 or 21, but sometimes it arrives as early as March 19th. This is because Earth doesn’t always circle the sun in exactly 365 days.
- Vernal is Latin for “spring” and equinox is Latin for “equal night.”
- The first day of Spring for the Northern Hemisphere is the first day of fall for the Southern Hemisphere.
- Holiday ready this season? Upcoming holidays for this colorful season include Easter, Passover, April Fool’s Day, Earth Day, Arbor Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
- December may be the most popular time to get engaged, but late spring (think late May, early June) is one of the most popular times to get married.
