        Fun Facts
        The first day of spring is called the vernal equinox. What does that stand for you ask? ‘Vernal’ is Latin for spring while ‘equinox’ is Latin for ‘equal night’.

        If you stand on the equator today, you would see the sun pass directly overhead. It only happens twice a year in spring time and autumn.

        The first spring flowers are typically daffodils, dandelions, lilies, tulips, iris and lilacs to name a few.

        Spring fever is not just a saying. Experts say the body’s makeup changes due to different diets, hormone production and temperature.
