There might still be snow on the ground in many parts of Canada but that doesn't mean we're not glad that spring, glorious wonderful spring, has officially arrived. March 20 marks the spring equinox, the official first day of spring.

After months of cold, sleet, snow and icy weather, we're looking forward to spring (and summer's) many, many charms. Here are our reasons for loving spring.

You can also share your reasons with us in the comments or on Twitter with the tag #LoveSpring. We'll add them to our post!
