#5 Super Ways to Celebrate the Spring Equinox

Although the nights will still stay dark for a little while longer, spring actually begins in five days, Sunday 20th March.
Why not gather some friends and family and have a small celebration. Here are 5 ways to celebrate the Spring Equinox.

  • Get Outside & Connect
    Take some time to celebrate the new life that surrounds you in nature. Watch the sunrise and/or sunset, go for a walk in the park, take a bike ride, lay in the grass, or take a hike. As you do so, observe all the new life beginning around you.

  • Plant New Life
    This is a good time of year to start planting your flowers and gardens if you haven’t already. If you live in an area where it is still not possible to plant anything, you can start some plants indoors or get your garden ready for late spring plantings.
    You may enjoy planting spring flowers or planting sunflowers with the kids.

  • Visit A Megalithic Monument
    This may not be possible for many of us but the idea of it sure is fun! Stonehenge is open to visitors on the winter and summer solstices and spring and autumn equinoxes.

  • Prepare A Family Feast
    No spring celebration is really complete without a family meal to go along with it. For the solstice, celebrate with foods that honour the coming of spring — eggs, early spring greens, shoots, sprouts, seasonal local produce, local bread, wine, etc.

  • Stand An Egg On Its End
    Legend has it that it is easier to stand an egg on its end during the spring equinox. I have never tried this, but it sounds like a great party trick to attempt while waiting for your spring solstice family feast!
