when I started this blog five years ago, I was a pet sitter and the name animal-crackers made sense. now I'm a stay-at-home-dad and freelance writer, but rather than confuse everyone by getting a different blog, it's just easier to keep posting things here.

"She googled it," he said.
Well, I googled it and found nearly every source pointing to March 20. Only one source told the truth. The vernal equinox occurs at 5:48 GMT, March 20.
So here's the weirdness. For Central Standard Time, that means the equinox comes at 11:48 pm, March 19. But we're not on standard time. We're on Central Daylight Saving Time. So the equinox will be at 12:48 am, March 20.
Are we supposed to celebrate the pagan holiday or not?
