Its the first day of Spring *Equinox today in the northern hemisphere.
The days are longer!
The equinox does not always fall on the same day each year due to the fact that the earth orbits the sun on a slightly elliptical path, meaning that the spring equinox can happen on either the 19th, 20th or 21st of March. Its all to do with when the sun crosses the equator.
Spring is traditionally celebrated as a time of rebirth such as Easter and Passover.
