Smart Kidz Club Weekly Newsletter, March 25, 2016

March 20th was the first day of Spring. The Spring equinox in the Northern Hemisphere is also known as the March equinox. It's called the "autumnal (fall) equinox" in the Southern Hemisphere. The March equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the equator from south to north. This event is called the equinox, which in Latin, literally means 'equal night' because the day & night are supposed to be equal in length. In reality though, equinoxes do not have exactly 12 hours of daylight.

The March equinox has long been celebrated as a time of rebirth in the Northern Hemisphere. Many cultures celebrate spring festivals and holidays around this time, like Easter and Passover. In Japan the arrival of cherry blossom (Sakura) is eagerly anticipated as the nation turns a shade of pink with the arrival. The colourful Hindu festival of Holi is celebrated near this time as well. This ancient religious festival has become popular across the world, including celebrations across the UK, though it is mainly observed in India and Nepal.

We wish you all a Happy Spring & Happy Easter!
