History of March Equinox in Cyprus and How to Celebrate/ Observe It

The March Equinox occurs every year on the 20th or 21st of March and marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator from south to north. In Cyprus, this means that the day and night are of equal length. The word “equinox” comes from the Latin for “equal night”.

On the day of the equinox, the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west, just as it does any other day of the year. However, at noon on the equinox, the Sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Cancer. This is the northernmost point at which the Sun can be directly overhead and is also known as the summer solstice.

In Cyprus, the weather is usually mild at this time of year and the days are getting longer. The March Equinox is a good time to start planning your garden and to sow some seeds.
