March 21 is not the first day of Spring has a wonderful article explaining why the vernal equinox can shift and points out that from 1981-2102, Spring will begin no later than March 20. The myth that Spring starts on March 21 must be quashed. People who suggest that should be loudly corrected.

On a completely unrelated note, March 20 just happens to be my birthday.

Unfortunately, my birthday is March 21st. I had a good run of First Day of Spring Birthdays, starting in 1945, but I guess the good times are over and I have to hand over the torch to you. I hope you enjoy many wonderful First Day of Spring Birthdays.
