celebrating the rites of spring
The spring equinox occurred yesterday. (If you live down under it was the fall equinox.) The day when the minutes of daylight and dark are perfectly balanced. It’s when the pagan religions celebrate spring. Check out my post on banning Easter Egg Hunts to see where I was last year when the days equalized. And today I’m posting links so you can explore different aspects of spring. Happy linking!
