March 21st: What on earth is Vernal Equinox?

An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the Sun being vertically above a point on the Equator.

Cool eh?

Apparently the darkness of last night was exactly the same length as the light of the daylight! Which obviously means that all these bearded fellows must go and dance around stone henge:
