“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.” – Anne Bradstreet
In 2022, the March equinox happens on Sunday, March 20, at 11:33 A.M. EDT. In Canada, this date marks the first day of spring!
The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night”. On the March equinox, day and night are approximately the same length.
With spring in the air, you can enjoy increasing sunlight hours, earlier sunrises, later sunsets, softer winds, and sprouting plants!
Here are some activities you can consider doing to kickstart the spring season:
- Go for a walk or a run outdoors
- Have a picnic
- Fly a kite
- Ride a bike
- Start a spring cleaning (clean, declutter, and organize your home)
- Go to a farmer’s market
- Cook something with fresh veggies
- Plant flowers
