In the meantime, we make the most of every sunny day….and even days that bring warmer weather than what we’ve grown accustomed too.
Here are some fun facts About the First Day of Spring
- If you were standing on the equator during either the vernal or autumnal equinox, you would see the sun pass directly overhead, the only two times in the year when that is true.
- The two equinoxes are also the only times during the year when the sun rises due east and sets due west.
- In spring, the Earth’s axis is tilted toward the sun, increasing the number of daylight hours and bringing warmer weather that causes plants to bring forth new growth.
