Happy Vernal Equinox!

Spring. Sprang. Sprung. And Celtic Mid-Spring, the Astronomical beginning of Spring and for you Neos out there, Ostara too.

Susan is there with the news before me:

Happy Vernal Equinox which began last night, actually, when it was March 20 at 5:38 Universal Time.

[update 3/24] Looks like I forgot نوروز Norooz, the Persian New Year, which is tied to the Vernal Equinox as well.
