I find it hard to believe that not one word was spoken here yet today about how you survived noon? Today is the equinox, did you forget? Yeah ,,, so Columbus came to America ~ by accident and everyone is talking about that, but not one word about the importance of the equinox. Very disappointing.


If you were located near the equator and walking along at noon,
you most likely would have fallen over from the change in the sun and moon.

Geeze, I got it mixed up, thought it was equine day so I went out an rode a horse in celebration of the day of the equine. I wondered why everyone was giving me funny looks today as I rode my horse down the freeway. They were honking and saluting and all the time I thought gee they think I'm number 1, how nice. Man what a dork. Equinox Day, hmmm, could've went to the equator and watched my shadow disappear. That sounds interesting.

Did you know that today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada?

OMG,,, it wasn’t yesterday after all, kaykay and PA2UK are correct it’s Sept 22, no wonder there wasn’t anyone talking about it yesterday. I must have been the only one who celebrated the equinox day and I was weeks off. Guess,,,, I’ll go back to another cup of coffee before I do that again. Am I bad or what?

Last time I’m buying a calendar at the 99cent store!

Aksarben, the spring Equinox occurs on March 22nd next year, so I'll keep your thread in mind when that time comes. - Yes, the Fall Equinox has already occurred on September 22nd, so we're waiting for the Winter Solstice (the day with the shortest daylight hours), which will occur on December 21st, and the summer Solstice (the day withe longest daylight hours) will be on June 21st.
