Spring is known as the time between Winter and Summer. In some places, spring is just a day of cooler temperatures while in others spring is a month of rain. More tropical states in the US, like Florida, don’t even treat spring as a season, but it’s been a celebrated time of year for many centuries.

In the Christian Faith, spring is most known for Lent. Lent is the shortened form of an Old English word ‘lencten’ which means spring season. Lent is essentially the countdown until Easter; it starts on Ash Wednesday and ends exactly six weeks later. The 40 days of the season reflect Jesus’s 40-day retreat into the desert. It involves a lot of fasting, not just from food but people can choose things to give up for the season as a sign of faith.

Easter is at the very end of Lent and is the main holiday during Spring for Christians. Easter is the celebration of when Jesus rose from the dead after being crucified. Christians believe he died for our sins and Easter is a celebration of the gates of Heaven opening for them. To celebrate it some people, go to church, some do Easter Egg Hunts, and others just spend time with their families.

In a non-religious aspect, Spring is also a time for new life. It’s the period when colder areas (namely, New England) start to see leaves back on the trees. Green returns to the area, flowers start blooming, and the bugs and birds come back. The most plentiful flowers in New England are Butterfly Weeds. Spring is also when many farm towns in the Northeast start planting crops again.

In conclusion, Spring is a very eventful season with plenty activities and sights no matter your faith or religion.
