I don't have much on this one, but will try to find out some more if I get time.

The Spring or Vernal equinox is a solar festival upon which day and night are equal. The coming of the spring is celebrated.

In Pagan tradition, spring is personified as the Green Man who is born of Mother Earth and lives and reigns until Samhain. Spring is celebrated through planting seeds, honouring the Green Man and Mother Earth through stories and role play, and and through giving and decorating eggs and holding egg hunts - the egg being representative of new life.
