Spring is Around The Corner in Prescott!

 

 

Happy Spring!

The month of March welcomes in spring! What great weather Prescott had this winter. Winter seemed to skip us until February this year. But I am always happy to welcome in March. The first day of spring is March 20th.The word ‘March’ comes from the Roman ‘Martius’. This was originally the first month of the Roman calendar and was named after Mars, the god of war. (Perhaps this is where Hollywood gets the idea of the Martians invading the earth?) Originally March was the beginning of our calendar year. We changed to the ‘New Style’ or ‘Gregorian calendar in 1752, and it is only since then that the year began on 1st January. The March equinox occurs the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator, the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator, from south to north. This happens either on March 19, 20 or 21 every year. In 325 AD the Council of Nicaea established that Easter would be held on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the vernal equinox. From that point forward, the Easter date depended on the ecclesiastical approximation of March 21 for the vernal equinox. The earliest possible Easter date in any year therefore is March 22 on each calendar. The latest possible Easter date in any year is April 25.  In 2018, we celebrate Easter on April 1st!

March is not only credited with the first day of spring, but March 17 is also a time of celebration for St. Patrick’s Day. Celebrated globally, Saint Patrick is known as the patron saint of Ireland. Although he was not actually Irish, he was a Christian missionary who is credited with converting Ireland to Christianity. And why do we wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? Because it was thought that  if you wore green you would be invisible to leprechauns, who would pinch anyone they could see. Therefore people began pinching those who didn’t wear green. So don’t get in a pinch this St. Patties day, remember to wear green!

“Winds of March, we welcome you,

Blow the Winter wind away.”
