Spring officially begins on March 20th. Here at Bill Roberts Chevrolet in Missouri, that means warmer temperatures, sunnier days, and beautiful colors blooming everywhere you look. If you’re ready to kick winter to the curb, here are five ways you can celebrate spring.
Have a Family Reunion
In Japan, they celebrate the Vernal Equinox with family gatherings and by visiting the graves of loved ones.
Visit Ancient Sites
Monuments like Stonehenge in England and others were built by ancient civilizations to align with the sun during events like the Equinox. This would be an ideal time to visit this iconic location.
Learn the Story Behind the Easter Bunny
The Easter bunny’s roots trace back to a Saxon tale about the goddess Eostre. In the story, she found an injured bird and transformed into a rabbit to save its life. However, the transformation was not complete and the rabbit continued to lay eggs, which it then decorated as gifts for Eostre.
Take a Trip to Mexico
If you visit the El Castillo pyramid on the spring equinox, you can watch the Shadow Snake descend down the pyramid with the setting sun.
Take care of the Earth
Take some time to beautify the world around you. Clean up trash or do some planting.
