Groundhog day: March 20th

If for some strange reason you thought today wasn’t the most special day of the year, keep on reading and you’ll find why you’re wrong.

First of all, after three days of snowing, the weather in Stockholm suddenly changed and the huge snowflakes finally ceased to harass our eyes and nostrils. I know, you might say: “there’s no reason why this should or will happen every year” and I’m going to take a leap of faith here, invoke a correlation and put everything on the account of this special day. It’s not like you’re going to reproduce the exact same conditions, experiment and prove me wrong, right?

The 20th day of March, the day of the vernal equinox, the day when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is neither inclined away or towards the Sun and also the first day of the year, if you happen to follow the Nowrūz calendar. All in all, the day that turns the table bringing sunlight in the foreground and shunning the darkness in the back.

Furthermore today, March 20, 2013 is the first ever International Day of Happiness. So if you were not aware and somehow planned to be sorrowful today or maybe it just happened that you were having a bad day and sulked over it, stop! That attitude is not allowed! Today we take a moment to reflect on what brings happiness into our lives, we acknowledge it as being a good and positive thing and we crack a little smile knowing that tomorrow (since it couldn’t possibly be the 20th of March again) will be worse.

So there you have it! Hopefully you enjoyed yourself today as much as I did, but if not, don’t despair there are only 365.25 days until the most awesome day of the year comes around again.

To top it all off, boost the greatness of this day and cover this little post in a mystery veil, one more reason why today is majestic can be found on our Facebook page. It’s nothing personal, or is it…
