20th March

Spring Equinox (2016) celebrated in all different ways:

Chungfen: The Chinese spring equinox celebrates the swallows flying back from Southern China. They stand eggs up, eat spring vegetable soup, eat Tang Yuan and hang tang yuan on bamboo sticks in the fields to keep the sparrows away. They sweep their ancestors’ tombs and worship them with offerings, etc.

Ostara: The olde worlde Germanic Pagan Easter, so decorate eggs:


First Day of Spring: So plant some seeds:

Make a nest out of whatever, yarn, cut grass, cotton wool, etc.

Get rid of that one lone glove left over from winter:

Go on a spring walk and bring a colour-sorting egg box:

Look out for a walking stick to paint:

Make flower cupcakes:

Make mud pies:
