Annually held in Las Vegas, Catersource is an event we simply never miss! It is the ultimate and most extensive trade show and conference for the catering and special event industry.

Spring Fun Facts

The first day of spring in the Southern Hemisphere is the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere.

  
 
The first spring flowers are typically lilacs, irises, lilies, tulips, daffodils, and dandelions.


One long-term study found that, at least in the Colorado Rocky Mountain region, spring begins, on average, about three weeks earlier than it did in the 1970s.


If Earth rotated on an axis perpendicular to the plane of its orbit around the sun rather than on a 23.4 tilt, there would be no variation in day lengths and no variation in seasons.

The early Egyptians built the Great Sphinx so that it points directly toward the rising sun on the spring equinox.


Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.


At Chichen Itza, Mexico, the Mayan celebrate the first day of spring with "The Return of the Sun Serpent." On the evening on the spring equinox, the setting sun creates a triangular shadow on the El Castillo pyramid that looks like a descending snake, or the feather serpent god Kukulkan.

  • The myth that it is possible to balance an egg on its end on the spring equinox is just that: a myth. Trying to balance an oval-shaped object on its end is no easier on the spring equinox than on any other day.
     
     
     The term "spring fever" refers to a both psychological and physiological symptoms associated with the arrival of spring, including restlessness, daydreaming, and increased sexual appetite. While the exact cause is unclear, scientists believe that increased light, more exercise, and more bare skin influence hormone levels.
     

  • The word "season" is from the Latin sationem meaning "sowing" or "seed time.


    Honeybees are more likely to swarm during the spring. They swarm as a way to start new colonies from successful ones. Surprisingly, swarming honeybees are very docile and the most friendly they will ever be all year.
