About the Spring Vernal Equinox Day

When is the Spring Vernal Equinox? March 20, 2023; March 19, 2024; March 20, 2025; March 20, 2026; March 20, 2027; March 19, 2028

The Vernal Equinox arrives today. Ah, Spring! A time when “a young man’s thoughts turn to thoughts of love”…and outdoors and fishing and gardening and…….. And, let’s not leave out the ladies. Spring brings out these thoughts and more, for both ladies and gentlemen. So, let’s go and enjoy what many believe to be the best season of them all!

The Spring Vernal Equinox brings days and nights in equal proportions. It is simply the day when there are exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of nighttime. But, did you know that this is only true on the Equator? For the rest of us, the timing is a little sooner, or later, depending on where we live on the planet. We won’t go any deeper than that, as this is a fun site, not a science course.

The other thing to note is that the Spring Equinox is just a calendar date. From a standpoint of weather in your area, real spring arrives sooner or later depending upon where you live in the Northern Hemisphere. If you are in the more northerly states in the country, or in Canada, snow and cold weather will stick around for just a little while longer. However, the good news is with the longer and longer days, temperatures are on the rise. 

Did you know? The Persian New Year begins on the Spring Equinox.
