Happy Spring March Vernal Equinox 2016

submitted on March 20, 2016 by CouponNut in "Member's Lounge"
March 20,2016 is the first full day of the Spring season. This year, 2016, is the earliest Spring has arrived in our lifetime. Depending on your time zone, March 19th welcomes in the Spring Season with the first full day of Spring March 20th. This is always good news for farmers and gardeners to get ready for seasonal planting. The Summer Solstice will arrive June 21, 2016 this year, the longest day of the year.

................


Why Spring Begins Early This Year
It all happens because the number of days in a year isn’t even. A year lasts 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds. Call it 365.2422 days. If only the year were 11 minutes longer, or 365.25000 days, we could simply add one day every fourth year and take care of the fraction forever.
