Fast facts:

  • March equinox (aka Spring equinox or vernal equinox) starts Sunday, March 20 and ends Tuesday, June 21.
  • "Equinox" comes from the Latin words for "equal night." On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world.
  • In the Southern Hemisphere, the March equinox marks the start of Autumn, while the September equinox marks the start of spring.
  • If you were standing on the equator on Sunday, March 20 at 11:33 A.M. EDT., the sun would pass directly overhead on its way north. 

Reasons to get excited for Spring:

  • Fresh fruits and veggies.
  • Flowers (those cherry blossoms!), gardens, and the leaves come back! (Did you know, growing plants absorb carbon dioxide?)
  • Birds return and there are baby animals everywhere.
  • You can get your vitamins naturally.
  • Earlier dawns and later sunsets.
  • Outdoor concerts.
  • Summer beers (and beer gardens).
  • Exercising in lighter clothes or taking your exercise routine outside.
  • Grilling season.
  • People watching.
  • It makes you more creative! Researchers at the University of Michigan found that being outdoors broadened participants' minds, leaving them more open to new information and creative thoughts.
