Spring Equinox

The Spring Equinox falls on March 2Oth at 12:57PM, marking the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Today the day and night are equal, and the days become longer than the night. Today the sun is exactly over the equator.

 All ancient cultures marked this day with special celebrations. It would note the time of year to begin planting. In Europe the ancient  Ostara celebrations marked the spring equinox.

 We usually have more for the Summer Solstice celebrations in the midcoast.  Due to usually having snow in the early part of spring there are just a few area celebrations. One in Jefferson Maine and another in Bangor, the Healing Arts Spring Equinox Fair.

Have hope, the days are getting longer, the sun is stronger Spring will come.
