The First Day Of Spring

Spring begins in the Northern Hemisphere
on March 20, 2012, at 1:14 A.M. (EDT).

Spring brings perfect weather, more daylight and the beautiful colors of blooming flowers. There is an energy that's unleashed in the spring. We are no longer confined to our homes or heavy clothes. We can breathe and enjoy the scents and sounds of spring. Find your ability to bloom and grow as the flowers do.

This day is also known as the Vernal Equinox, a day when people can stand an egg on its end. The word equinox is derived from the Latin words aequus (equal) and nox (night), because around the equinox, the night and day have approximately equal length.
