Ah, the first breath of Spring, a longed-for reawakening after a period of cold and dark. There is more to Spring than just the turn of the season and the equinox; there is Spring Break.

Historically it began with ancient rituals of the Greeks. This is the season of fertility and rituals featuring dancing and drinking, celebrating Dionysus and Bacchus, the Roman god of wine welcomed the season of rebirth. Stir the spirit and revel in this joyous occasion and make the return of Spring into more than just a trivial occurrence.

Welcome Spring!

Head outside and look for signs of Spring. Bring some inside. Choose this month to start traditions. Clean out the winter from the house, air it out, freshen up with lighter colored accessories and brightness. Head out and explore the plants and flowers. Carry a pair of scissors in the car so you can stop and pick while on the road. Seek clippings of branches with tiny leaves, or some of Spring’s first flowers and any other appealing greenery that strikes you. Place it in tiny vases or larger ones for the branches or in other vessels about your house.
