Spring. Bunnies, Easter eggs, and flowers. These are some things that emerge during spring. Spring occurs between March 20 and June 21 in the northern hemisphere. Many thoughts about spring relates to Easter, Coachella Festival, and flowers. However, these aren’t the only things that people look forward to. They also look forward to what happens during spring, holidays in spring, and where people go during spring break.
During spring, flowers bloom into the beautiful shape they look like in pictures. More people tend to enjoy spring due to its creation of nature. Also, according to an article in Yougov.com, “While for the majority (30%) of 18-34 year old Americans summer is their favorite season, this is the case for just 20% of those aged 55 and over. 37% of 55s and older prefer spring above all – the perfect time of year for gardening and enjoying the warmer weather before the height of summer.”
There are many holidays in spring like St. Patrick's Day and April Fools. There is also Easter and Mother’s day. These holidays are both celebrated by tradition. Mother's day is about celebrating and being grateful for your mother. Easter is about Christians celebrating Jesus Christ’s resurrection, St. Patrick’s Day is about the death of St. Patrick, and April Fools Day is about pranking each other.
Spring break is the time where people bond with their families and/or friends. You can travel to many places due to the warmer weather. Spring isn't too hot like summer and not too cold like winter; Spring is just right. People go to places like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, and more.
Many festivals occur during Spring, including the Coachella Music Festival, which is one of the more popular music festivals in the spring. This event is located in Indio, CA, about 130 miles away from Los Angeles. The general pass admission for three days is $429, and prices have increased. A lot of people state that the Coachella is one of the best music festivals they’ve been to. Many artists perform in this festival such as The Weeknd, Beyonce, and Eminem. You can also download an app to help you schedule when you want to go there because tickets sell out quickly. There are also multiple decorations such as pieces of art. Various festivals happen during this time such as the Stagecoach in Indio. If the tickets are already sold out for the Coachella, don’t be worried, because you can always enjoy the other upcoming music festivals.
