The History of Spring

Spring has been celebrated since ancient times, with celebrations of renewal and rebirth such as Easter, Passover, and the Chinese New Year. In many cultures, the start of spring is marked by various festivals and celebrations.

The earliest written mention of the season in English is from Old English, where it was referred to as Lentmonaþ. The name likely derives from lengthening days and blooming flowers.

During medieval times, in Europe and the Middle East, spring was often a time of great joy and celebration. People often celebrated with feasts, fireworks, dancing, music, parades and other activities. In some places such as France, people would even light huge bonfires in the streets to celebrate the arrival of spring.

In more recent times, spring has come to represent a transition from the cold and darkness of winter into brighter days and warmer weather. People now often celebrate with outdoor activities such as picnics, festivals, and sports events such as baseball games.

No matter how it is celebrated, spring has always been seen as an occasion for joy, renewal and hope. It is a reminder that brighter days are ahead and gives us all a chance to take part in activities that will help us enjoy the beauty of this season.

So, turn up the music, break out your cocktail shaker, and get ready for a bit of fun in the sun! Whether it's a romantic date night or just some friends gathering for a drink, we're here to make sure you have a great time celebrating the start of this new season. Spring is finally here – let's get the party started!

Regardless of how you decide to commemorate this time of year, we have crafted a special Spring Transition Mixlist exclusively for you!
