As per the astronomy and modern science, there are two kinds of equinoxes that happen every year in the month of March and September. In this particular period, both day and night seems to be in equal time of length across the earth, as the sun directly shines on the equatorial region. The month of March is generally recognized by most of the people as symbolic of change in seasons. The moment when the sun crosses the equator region is called as the Vernal equinox as well as spring equinox (as people welcome spring in this particular time). March equinox is normally celebrated as rebirth of the northern hemisphere. Many more cultures celebrate spring festivals and holidays around this equinox, like Passover and Easter.
