Mar.21 – Spring Equinox Day

Mar_iconMarch 21st is the Spring Equinox Day. Since Japan has 4 seasons, there are 4 equinox days. But we celebrate only 2 equinox days, Spring Equinox Day and Autumn Equinox Day as national holidays.

I don’t know the reason. But the Spring Equinox Day was set as national holiday for admiring  nature and loving lives in the law.

Actually saying, I wonder how may people celebrating this…Young people may not know the meaning of the day. But national holiday is well accepted by people with pleasure…
