In Spring, we celebrate the spring equinox, but most importantly, we traditionally celebrate new beginnings. 

Most ancient traditions celebrate Spring, which symbolizes fertility, rebirth, and renewal. This time of year marks the beginning of the agricultural cycle. This is also when farmers start planting seeds.

Many of the symbols of Spring have roots in the concept of growth and rebirth. A typical example is rabbits and hares, which reproduce in the Spring. Hares are nocturnal most of the year, but in March, they come out; they seek a mate to have their babies. During mating season, hares are seen all day long. Furthermore, female hares can get pregnant with a second litter while pregnant with the first litter. This explains why they were seen as symbols of fertility.

But we will talk more about this when Easter comes; you’ll meet Goddess Eostre.

Most cultures used to go outside to meditate and perform a simple ritual to welcome the Spring. Another common way to celebrate the coming spring is to plant seeds. Some families incorporate seasonal candy, such as peeps and chocolate rabbits, with their kids to help them get in the event’s spirit.

So, beloved peeps, let’s get ready to welcome the Spring equinox.
