First Day of Spring 2022

Spring 2022 begins on Sunday, March 20!

This date marks the spring equinox and the astronomical first day of spring around the Northern Hemisphere. What IS the spring equinox and what happens on this day? Before you try to balance that egg, read on to learn more—including ideas on how to spend the first days of spring.

What Does Spring “Equinox” Mean, Exactly?

The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night”—aequus (equal) and nox (night). On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world. With the equinox, enjoy an increasing amount of sunlight hours, with earlier dawns and later sunsets!

Can you feel the Sun getting stronger? The longer days bring high temperatures. Both we and the animals around us discard our warm clothes and heavy coats!
