Happy Spring 2022!
Happy Spring! (Or if you’re located on the other side of the planet, Happy Autumn!)
Today, March 20, 2022, marks the return of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, the season of life beginning. It’s also known as the vernal equinox. That’s only one of two days out of the year where they are equal length for night and day. The other day is the Autumnal equinox, usually September 23 or 22.
Spring is the season of love (Although more babies are naturally conceived during the winter months! It’s true. What have you been doing all winter long, hmm? 😁)
Maybe it’s that dopamine hit we get from the beautiful scenery: the bright colors, the heady fragrances of the flowers, and greenery coming to life. Many people in the wintery climates suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, where they feel depressed during the dark grey season. However, when the sun’s extra rays hit the hemisphere with a super dose of Vitamin D, people feel reinvigorated and willing to face any challenge…
A Season For Love
…Even falling in love.
Personally, we’re more Autumnal in nature, as the change of seasons from summer to winter inspires a different kind of beauty and (to us) a deeper kind of love.
But there’s nothing like the first romance in bloom. In Latin languages, the word for Spring translates into “first-seen” (Italian, Spanish, & Portuguese “primavera“) as in, the first seen sight of life–or love.
So let’s celebrate the end of winter and the entrance of the months of re-birth and life! Happy Spring 2022!
As Biz Markie once sang, “It’s spring again…this is the time to fall in love.”
