The Spring Equinox is the first day of Spring. On this day, which always falls between March 19th and March 21st, there are exactly 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. Spring is the season associated with new life.

Traditional early Spring foods include eggs, early fruit and vegetables and some remaining winter supplies. This recipe uses eggs and parsley (an early spring herb). It is therefore ideal to celebrate the arrival of Spring.
