With the first sunny days of this month of March, many wonder when spring 2023 begins. The date of the beginning of spring changes every year but it always takes place between March 19 and 21. This is because the beginning of the season, or equinox, is marked by the instant when the Earth is at a certain position in its orbit around the Sun.
Thus, in the spring, the two poles of the Earth are at the same distance from the Sun, and only one exact half of the Earth is illuminated. Furthermore, when this occurs, the duration of the day and night practically coincide.
In 2023, spring will begin on Friday March 20 and will last 92 days until the beginning of summer. This is always speaking of spring as a season or astronomical spring.
Along with the entry of spring 2023 will come the time change to enter the summer time. This year, as always, the time is changed on the last weekend of March.
In this way, at dawn from Saturday 25 to Sunday 26 March, the clocks will go from 02:00 a.m. to 03:00 a.m., that is, in this time change one hour is advanced.
Spring marks one of the most important festive periods in Spain: Holy Week. Its date is different every year because Easter Sunday is calculated using the lunar calendar.
Thus, Easter Sunday will always be the one following the first full moon of the boreal spring (that is, from the northern hemisphere).
