What is the Vernal Equinox?
According to the Franklin Institute (click for reference):
Vernal Equinox occurs when the tilt of the Earth’s rotational axis reaches a particular position. We’re all aware of the imaginary axle the Earth spins around once every 24 hours. While we might imagine that axle to be vertical – that is, perpendicular to Earth’s orbital plane – the axle is tilted 23.5 degrees from vertical. It’s this tilt, not our proximity to the sun, that causes our seasons. Let’s see what this might look like if we could be far enough out in space.The Franklin Institute, “What is Vernal Equinox?”

How do I celebrate spring with my baby?
A great way to start off your spring celebration is with some bunny shaped pancakes. Taking a family walk and looking out for bunnies, budding flowers, and other signs of spring is a wonderful tradition as well. We love to celebrate the first day of each season! We write down the traditions on an index card so we’ll remember them year to year.
