Spring Breaks in the Forest of Dean – Pet-Friendly Holidays
When is it Springtime in the UK?
The seasons are defined as spring (March, April, May), summer (June, July, August), autumn (September, October, November) and winter (December, January, February) The first day of spring in the UK astronomically occurs on the vernal equinox, 20 March 2020.
In short, Springtime is almost upon us.
What does that actually mean? Why is Springtime more important than any other season of the year? It’s the time of year when everything in nature is changing and promising new life and new hope. After the long, dark, winter months, spring is literally a breath of fresh air. And as the days get longer, the nights get shorter, and it starts to feel warmer, nature responds in a big way.
Also, the gathering at Stone Henge is another marker to let you know that ‘spring has sprung’. Druids, pagans and revellers gathered at dawn by Stonehenge’s ancient stones to mark the vernal equinox, the official beginning of springtime. Twice a year, the earth’s axis is angled so that the world gets an equal amount of daylight and night, a highly significant event in the pagan calendar.
In case you don’t know; Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, two miles west of Amesbury. It consists of a ring of standing stones, each around 13 feet high, seven feet wide, and weighing around 25 tons.
