March / April

In March and April, you have good reasons to surprise power women, siblings and grandparents, celebrate the beginning of spring or play Easter bunny. Find out more.
Meteorological first day of spring: 1 March (fixed date)
If you feel that spring begins on 1 March, you are not alone. In meteorology, the beginnings of all seasons have officially been brought forward to the first day of the relevant month, for practical reasons. It makes it easier to keep statistics and make climate comparisons. In any case, you can get spring flowers at the flower shop at the beginning of March, even if the weather should not play along once.
International Women's Day: 8 March (fixed date)
The day was founded in 1910 by Clara Zetkin in order to give more emphasis to women's demands for equality in public. Much has been achieved since then, some not yet. And that is why it is still a matter of striving to live together at eye level. Show solidarity ... and surprise women with flowers: as a sign of appreciation and loyalty, but also for joy at what has been achieved.
Astronomical and calendar first day of spring: between 19 and 21 March
For astronomers, and therefore also by the calendar, spring begins with the spring equinox. This takes place when the sun - as seen from the Earth - crosses the celestial equator from south to north, which happens every year between 19 and 21 March.

On average, there are 365 days, 5 hours and 49 minutes between two first days of spring, which means that each one starts slightly less than 6 hours later than the previous one. By the time 4 years have passed, the time has therefore shifted by 23 hours and 16 minutes.

Fortunately, there is then always a leap year, which not only absorbs this difference but actually overcompensates for it with the additional day in February. Either way: flowers are always beautiful - especially at the beginning of spring!
International Day of Happiness: 20 March (fixed date)
One is happy to live in a peaceful country, to be healthy and not hungry, or to have a loving partner and healthy children. The other remembers momentary feelings of happiness when kissing, hugging or watching a sunset. Never mind. The constant pursuit of happiness is important to everyone. That is why the Day of Happiness was introduced by the United Nations in 2012. So: Be happy, and share your happiness with others, e.g. by giving flowers to someone who is less lucky and could use a little happiness.
Easter: between 22 March and 25 April
Easter is more than Easter bunnies and chocolate eggs. At Easter Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who, according to the New Testament, overcame death as the Son of God. This celebration always takes place on the Sunday after the first full moon in spring. Terms like Easter or Ostern could be of Old Germanic or Old English origin and be connected to the dawn (Old Germanic «austro», Old English «eostre») as a symbol of hope. Other terms such as «Pâques» or «Pasqua», on the other hand, show the connection to the Jewish Passover, the seven days in which Jesus’s death and resurrection took place.
Siblings Day: 10 April (fixed date)
Do you like your siblings? Or do you sometimes want them to jump in the lake? Maybe it's time to get in touch again, e.g. on the Siblings' Day. It was founded in 1997 by Claudia Evart, who lost her brother and sister very early due to an accident. Sibling relationships may not always be harmonious. Nevertheless, sooner or later one usually recognizes the inner bond. Make a contact attempt, preferably with flowers.
