Why does spring begin on March 20?
The equinox is the moment when the sun aligns itself, at its zenith point, with respect to the equator thus creating a perfect division between day and night. Equinox derives from the Latin aequa-nox, which refers to the balance between the hours of light and those of darkness.
Why is the equinox so important?
The astral equinox phenomenon has always played an important role in the history of humanity, both in ancient times, where pagan rites saw the rebirth of nature and the end of poverty and the cold winter months in the equinox. also for Christianity: it is no coincidence that Easter falls right near the equinox, the feast of light and resurrection. In addition, the equinox in India coincides with Holi, the festival of colors, which sees people take to the streets and dye themselves with colored pigments.
