CultureLink Newsletter - May 2018
After a long winter, spring is finally here! This is the time for personal change and renewal. A time where we start to declutter our lives or even our home with spring cleaning. This season brings extended daylight where we can take off our coats and enjoy the weather. Did you know? The word equinox comes from the Latin word meaning “equal night”, the name explains the time of the year when the day and night are of equal length. After being indoors for most of the winter, enjoy this season to be out with your families, enjoy seeing the rebirth of the flowers and trees. Wishing you all a happy spring season.
