Mar 20

Spring is here!

In Russian culture, spring begins on the first of March, with Russians all over saying “Happy Spring” as winter gives its final push and it’s still snowing outside.  I was always grumpy in the face of this relentless cheerfulness.  What 20 days make!

Here on the east coast, it’s been a really hard winter, with a lot of snow, and I have been looking forward to when the daylight starts to push the night back as far as it can.  And, as someone who celebrates the turning of the year as a holiday, it really adds a bounce to my step.
