Spring Into History

So we all know spring is awesome, and that it’s the season between winter and summer (or if you live in Michigan, it’s the season between winter and second winter or sometimes between second winter and road construction).  Spring mean’s rebirth, regrowth, renewal.  The seasons are determined by the temperature of the months, and each season lasts roughly around 3 months.  Here we know March 20th as the first day of spring, but some Celtic and East Asian cultures consider March 20th “mid-spring.”  Spring is the result of the warmth from the Earth’s axis beginning to tilt towards the sun.  Since the weather starts to get warmer, the plants start to grow again, leaves and flowers on trees start to bloom, and animals come out of hibernation.

Now let’s regrow our love for everything spring, and think spring this week!
