The spring equinox ( also called March Equinox) happens today, which is Tuesday, March 20th, 2018. It also means astronomical first day of spring in Northen Hemisphere.

What is equinox? Word equinox comes from Latin words, which actually mean “equal nights” – eaquus (equal) and nox (night).

The days will be longer, the sunset will be later and the weather will be warmer. Summer is comming.

There are only two equinoxes a year: spring equinox and fall equinox.

This year fall equinox fall on Saturday, September 22nd, 2018.

To take advantage of earlier dawns and later sunsets, we also turn the clocks two times a year. Just recently, on March 11th, 2018, we turned the clock one hour forward , so we can enjoy even longer summer days.

Have a great spring season!
