Celebrating the Spring Equinox

Published Mar 15, 2016 | Updated Feb 19, 2020

We are often so busy we forget to celebrate special times. March 20th whether you are on a vacation or at home, find the time to appreciate the spring equinox. We have three great ideas for you.

Celebrating the Spring Equinox

Acknowledging the changing of the seasons is important.  It reminds and teaches us that transitions are beautiful, sometimes hard (in the case of the winter solstice). Change is always happening whether we want it to or not.  We can choose to be grateful for change, whether it is the changing of the seasons, our child taking their first steps, or our child taking their first steps away from us as they enter their dorm for the first time.  

On March 20th or 21st plan ahead and celebrate the Spring Equinox.  Here are some ideas for a spring equinox party.  This year it begins on Sunday, March 20th.  

  1. Invite some other families, or just your own, and wake up and find the sunrise on Sunday, March 20th.  Enjoy the solitude of the beach, mountains, or your own backyard as you all watch the sunrise.  We suggest having a sunrise celebration breakfast after. 
  2. Have a spring equinox planting party.  During the day invite your friends over and plant herb gardens in egg cartons.  You can literally plant these gardens in the ground, or just have them on your windowsill.  You must use paper egg cartons if you want to replant outside.  It is fun, easy to do, and every age can participate.
  3. Have a sunset party.  Find a great place for a sunset and weather permitting make a picnic dinner.  Plan ahead where you can truly watch the sunset. Is it a local park, beach, mountain? If the weather is not cooperating, bundle up for the sunset and have a pot luck at home.

We are often so busy we forget to celebrate special times.  This March 20th whether you are on a vacation or at home, find the time to appreciate the spring equinox.  I am going to try and do all three things on the list.  How about you?  Please share if you have even more ideas.  You can find out more about Getting Outside and Exploring at our amazing Tiny Treks Programs  Registration is open now for summer and fall.
