First Day of Spring

Today is a national holiday in Japan – Vernal Equinox Day.  This national holiday was established in 1948 as a day for the admiration of nature and the love of living things. Prior to 1948, the vernal equinox was an imperial ancestor worship festival called Shunki kōrei-sai.

Just because the calendar says spring, doesn’t mean it is spring.  Winter isn’t over until it’s over.
