Spring begins during the vernal equinox which this year falls on March 20th. This typically takes place on either the 19th, 20th, or 21st of March every year. This event marks the first day of spring. After the vernal equinox, the northern hemisphere is tilted more towards the sun. This means that we will be getting more sunlight for a longer amount of time during the day. On March 20th, we will be getting sunshine for approximately 12 hours during this day. After March 20th, the amount of sunlight will incrementally increase until the first day of summer.
Spring is a good time to enjoy some sunlight and the nice weather that is coming! There are so many fun things to do during the months of spring.

How to Celebrate Spring:
As the weather is getting nicer and the days are getting longer, take some time during your day to get outside and go for a walk, run, or hike. Even just take five minutes of your time to enjoy some fresh air. Spending time outside is a good time to look at the nature around you. Birds are starting to return, and flowers are starting to bloom! Enjoy the beauty.
Plant a seed and watch it grow! If you are someone who likes to plant seeds, spring is a good time to start! Find something that you want to grow whether that be a plant, a vegetable, or a flower, and watch it grow!
