1. Cherry Blossom Festival
It’s on right now. Go! Before the blooms dissolve into fallen petals from the rain.
2. First Day of Spring
Today is the Zoroastrian holiday and also marked the vernal equinox. Around the vernal equinox (which was at 1:14am this morning), you can balance eggs quite easily — not only is this immensely satisfying, it’s also just amazingly fun. Last night I balanced 5 eggs. Win! Also for the holiday of No Ruz, you put together a Haft Seen — or a table with symbolic elements, all of which represent or highlight the passing of Winter, the coming of Spring, and the hopes for a good harvest. It’s basically the most amazing holiday ever. Oh and did I mention that the Tuesday before No Ruz, you get to jump over bonfires? Bonfires, I tell you!
3. Receiving actual letters in the mail
I just got a letter from my dear friend Catherine. And it was awesome!
