Sophomore Kayla Vanderlinden celebrates the first day of her favorite season, spring, March 20. 

Kayla Vanderlinden, ’20, celebrates the first day of spring, March 20. The new season officially begins at 12:57 p.m.

The first day of spring takes place when the sun crosses the celestial equator and moves northward. Today is also known as also known as the Vernal Equinox; vernal in Latin means spring and equinox translates to ‘equal night.’

Vanderlinden’s loves to watch all the flowers bloom everywhere during springtime, making it her favorite season.

“Spring is my favorite season because it’s when all the flowers bloom, and the sun break through the clouds and makes everything look super pretty,” Vanderlinden said. “Pretty flowers and rain make me think of Spring. My favorite flower is a tulip because that’s the nation flower for the Netherlands, and that’s where a lot of my distant family lives.”

March, April and May make up the spring months in Northern Hemisphere.
