Spring and why you should celebrate it

March 22, 2018

Most of us with our busy “modern” lives, rush hours and packed calendars barely notice the seasons unless maybe it is beginning of a sport season. However, celebrating change of seasons is a great excuse to create memories for our children, to take a step back and ponder, to practice gratitude and most importantly to enjoy life.

Finally, comes spring equinox; Time to shake off those winter blues and celebrate when Mother Earth gets ready to give birth to new crop of plants, when trees start standing tall and breathing again and migrant birds come back from far away places to make their nests and find love.

My favourite season of all is spring. To me it is the time to celebrate growth, hope, femininity, fertility and beauty. No wonder egg plays an important role in many spring rituals, as it is universal symbol of fertility and rebirth.

Many cultures around the world has some sort of ritual to celebrate beginning of longer days, blooms, blossoms and the promise of spring:

Nowruz with Haftseen in Iran, Holi - Festival of Colors in India, Songkran Water festival in Thailand, Singing in the Streets of Spain, Qingming Festival in China, Pancake week in Russia, Marzanna in Poland, Baba Marta in Bulgaria, and even here in Canada comes Tulip Festival in May, although no surprise that it’s a bit later than most countries…lol.
