"Equinox" means equal night: equi meaning equal, and nox meaning night. This is so because the Sun is directly positioned above the equator, and it spends equal time in day and night during this time. On this day, March 20th, the vernal equinox signals spring here in America, and everyone here knows what happens around spring -- Spring Break in the schools (especially universities!).
So get into the spring spirit with these high definition wallpapers!
