Seasons come and go, and they bring seasonal holidays in tow. We always make sure that we stay in season by keeping track of all 12 seasonal holidays. These holidays have been celebrated for years and help us mark the opening and closing of each temperament period. No matter what, there’s always a holiday to look forward to in the upcoming season.
Where did seasonal holidays come from?
Seasonal holidays come from ancient times. Ancient Greeks celebrated the Feast of Poseidon. Nowruz, the day of the vernal equinox, has been celebrated for over 3000 years in Western Asia. Makara Sankranti, that marks the end of the winter solstice has its roots in ancient religious practices of India.
When the first leaf turns yellow we think of Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving – happy times! Spring Equinox is celebrated on March 20 all over the world and in some cultures, it is regarded as the beginning of a new year. National Moon Day is celebrated on July 20, and Daylight Savings Day on November 4 is an important celebration for the U.S. This is the day you roll your clock back by an hour to avoid chaos. It also means one extra hour of shut-eye!
