Yes, folks, today is the first day of spring, or the vernal equinox, or the first day of autumn, or the autumnal equinox, depending on which side of the equator you live.

Happy Spring! Happy Autumn!

I have to ask our friends from down under, how weird is it to be celebrating fertility and "new green" festivals such as Easter and Passover (um, that egg on the seder plate?) during a season that those of us in the Northern Hemisphere equate with Halloween, Thanksgiving, a tang to the air, watching the leaves turn color and drop off the trees, football (American), and the excitement in the knowledge that Christmas is just around the corner?

it can't be the start of spring! It's hailing!


Spring is quite possibly my favourite season. Summer is waay too hot, winter is uncomfortable because of rain and snow and hail, and autumn means going back to school. Spring is just right - so let's hope it actually gets here soon!

i love Autumn!!!! (FALL hehe) it is my favorite time of the year (tough decision though comparing it to the beauty of spring) just the colour of the leaves when they turn those stunning orangy yellow colours are sooo pretty!!!

I was in the US last september and it was going orange it was sooo pretty and i remember there were pumpkins everywhere (like in the shops) it was so funny and in starbucks they had pumpkin coffee and doughnuts or something

you crazy americans!!! love you!!!

I'm happy it's spring.

I want to walk around outside without fear of slidding on icy hills!
