The word equinox comes from Latin and means “equality of night and day.” So, the equinox occurs at two specific moments in time when the sun is exactly above the equator, which actually occurs twice a year.
In the northern hemisphere, the spring, or vernal equinox happens around March 21, when the sun moves north across the celestial equator.
It is a time of celebration where many cultures celebrate the return of spring, the blossoming of nature or the rise of the vernal equinox.
