First Day Of Autumn

Quote for Today

“The foliage has been losing its freshness
through the month of August,
and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself
like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty
who has seen one season too many.”

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

Thought for the Day

Today is September 22 2008, the first day of autumn, first day of fall, autumn equinox, autumnal equinox, fall equinox, no matter what you call it today is a special day. Today marks the changing of the seasons, it happens in the spring too, the spring equinox or the first day of spring.

The equinox, a specific moment in time not an entire day, night and day are almost equal. Equinox is latin, equi = equal, nox = night. It is said that during an equinox the sun can be observed directly over the equator. According to the Farmers Almanac the equinox occurs at 11:44 A.M eastern USA time.

The equinoxes are the only days the sun rises due east and sets due west.

I wish for you a pleasant and enjoyable First Day of Autumn.
