March 19 is the First Day of Spring
March 19 is the first day of Spring, or the spring equinox. The equinox is when the moment that the sun crosses over the celestial equator on its journey towards its northernmost declination. Celebrate this special day by planting some flowers and gardens with your kids if you haven’t already. If you live in an area where it is not possible to plant anything, you can start some plants indoors or get your yard and garden ready for late spring plantings.
