Five Reasons Spring is the Best Time of Year: Celebrating the Equinox

Spring Equinox

The start of spring is marked on March 20 this year, with the sun crossing the equator and heading into the north. This year the springtime is going to offer more hope than usual, as many look to get their lives back on track and we’ll perhaps be celebrating the season and the Equinox more than ever.

Spring is always a positive season. We’ve seen out the winter and our bingo rooms are always full of players feeling fresh, optimistic, and looking forward to the warmer months. It’s why many of us believe spring is the best season of the four. But what are the main reasons for that?

Five Reasons Why Spring Is The Best

There are a number of reasons why spring is the best of all the months, so we decided to run down the five biggest reasons why we always welcome in this time of the year…

New Life

Spring is the time of year where we welcome new life across the animal kingdom. And aren’t they just the cutest. There’s nothing sweeter than watching lambs skipping across a field and they aren’t the only being. Calves, bunnies, piglets, chicks, and many more animals enter the world during the spring and it’s always a nice time to head out into the countryside or visit your local farm to see the new life unfolding in front of your eyes.

Colour

While we associate winter with blacks, greys, and very dark colours, the spring sees the trees and plants begin to flower and the season comes to life with colour. The likes of daffodils and bluebells take over fields and lift the mood of a nation.

Warmer Weather

We see the days get lighter for longer and with that the spring brings warmer weather, allowing you to really make the most of nature and seeing friends, whether that be sat in a local park or out exploring Britain’s waterways or rolling hills. It opens up the possibilities to do more and we’ll all be taking advantage of that given the previous winter. It’s ideal weather for camping, walking, and, of course, lighting that barbeque for the first time of the year.

Easter is celebrated across the world and is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with family, as well as gorge on chocolate, if you’re anything like us anyway. While it’s not as celebrated as Christmas, it’s a great chance to catch up with friends and family over the long weekend, and even take up various activities like Easter egg hunts and Easter bonnet competitions. There are tons more treats that can be enjoyed too, including the likes of hot cross buns, cakes, and macarons.

Spring Cleaning

Spring provides the perfect excuse to be out with the old and in with the new. Whether it be your wardrobe, garden, or even your home, a good clear out and refresh can really lift the spirits and there’s no better time to do it than as we start to approach the warmer months.
