Vernal Equinox (March 19 or 20, depending on time zone).

In 2016, the Vernal Equinox falls on March 19 in most of North America and on March 20, a half hour after midnight, in those areas which follow Eastern Daylight Time. See our First Day of Spring page for equinox times, facts, and folklore. The word equinox is derived from the Latin words meaning "equal night." The vernal, or spring, equinox is the point at which the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from south to north, signaling the beginning of nature's renewal in the Northern Hemisphere.
