Northern Hemisphere Vernal Spring Equinox: Happy Day To You!

Spring is my favorite season and what a beautiful day to ring in the Vernal Spring Equinox! In Toronto, it’s been a perfect 20+°C sunny, slightly cloudy, with a little breeze ‘happy day’.

In the Northern Hemisphere winter officially ended at 1:14 a.m. ET on Tuesday, March 20, 2012—the vernal equinox, or spring equinox—making today the first day of spring.
