Today, March 20, is the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. And after the very unusual winter weather we've endured, I think it came just in time.
March 20 is, of course, the first day of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. And tomorrow, March 21, is Harmony Day in Australia, a time to celebrate cultural diversity.
My Australian friend The Book Chook offers some background on the holiday, and great ways to celebrate the differences that make our community, our country, and our world so beautiful and fascinating. Read more on The Book Chook's blog post here.
To all my Northern Hemisphere friends, happy spring! And to my friends in the Southern Hemisphere, happy autumn! (We hope you'll have a better winter than we did!)
