Happy Spring Equinox 2021.
[It is also called the Vernal Equinox
— that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]
I also share with you “Spring“.
In this case the ‘2021 Spring Festival Gala’ from China.
Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the
2021 Spring Equinox.
Notice that it is NOT EXACTLY 12 hours of sunlight on the Equinox.
That is mainly because we are so good at measuring time.
It has to do with the so called precession of the Earth’s axis.
Our rotation WOBBLES like a spinning top.

Yes, we are USED to the Spring Equinox being on March 20 (or 21).
It being on March 19 last year was EARLY.
As is my custom let me also please share some
catching ‘Allegories of Spring’
— Allegories of Spring a tradition
going back to at least the Renaissance.
