Spring has slowly begun to creep onto us; well sitting in my chair it kind of feels almost like the seasons are stuck on a loop; however it might just be taking the seasons a little bit longer at the moment. However, without a doubt if you are living in the northern hemisphere you should most definitely be experiencing a slight tinge of spring in the air, or is that just the whiff of flowers growing again? We here at Sir Holiday couldn’t help but think that one of the best ways to kick-start that urge to spring clean or just to pull out your best pair of shorts is with a couple of little known spring facts. Therefore, without any further ado let’s take a look into spring.
If your relationship is feeling a little wary, then beware you could soon find yourself as a newly single person. Why, well it seems that couples have a higher likelihood of splitting up during spring and the lead up towards Christmas than any other time of the year. Must be something in the air?
Even the sun is a little different during the changing of seasons, the spring and autumnal equinoxes are the only recorded times of the year when the sun rises at exactly due east and sets due west.
The vast majority of the time spring will be on either March the 20th or March the 21st, however every now and then it is in fact March the 19th that earns the prize for kicking off the warmer months. The main reason that we have variable dates for the beginning of the seasons is that the earth’s rotation is not nailed down to 365 days and this differentiation in length of the orbits causes differentiation in the due date for spring each year.
You might imagine that spring is about the greatest time a baby can be born, because who wouldn’t want to have their birthday party during the spring months? After all the weather is just right and the sun isn’t yet overbearingly oppressive. However, it does not seem that spring is beneficial for the little ones. Studies have found that children who were born in the springtime are for more likely to form conditions such as bipolar disorder, depression, anorexia and schizophrenia when compared to children born in other seasons.
Onto a lighter note, if you are as obsessed with flowers as we are, then you will be delighted to know that the very first flowers that you can expect to bloom in spring include irises and lilacs. Other specimens that you can expect to find include dandelions and tulips.
If you are trying to delay the onset of menopause then spring might be your best friend. Statically speaking women are far less likely to feel the beginnings of menopause in spring than in autumn or winter. This is pretty fantastic considering all of the heat waves coming their way.
