Explore the Spring Equinox!

March 22, 2017

The Spring Equinox; Celebrating the Greening of the Earth by Ellen Jackson

Despite the wintry weather this week, March 21st marked the first day of spring for the northern hemisphere. At this point in the year, I think many people begin to focus on the imminent spring, and what better way to get into the spring spirit than with books?

The Spring Equinox is an interesting book that describes some of the ways in which people through time have thrown off the heavy coats of winter to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Music, dancing, flowers, eggs, bonfires, performances, and games are just some of the ways we have traditionally beaten our cabin fever. When the last stretch of winter seems to last and last, brighten these last cold weeks with traditions from around the world. Time will fly if you’re having fun! Take a little closer look to find out more about the spring equinox
