The Spring equinox is a season for new commencements. It is a time for many cultures to stop appreciating the little things, thanking the world for their offerings, and welcoming the new season of growth. This infographic visualizes spring equinox rituals in 15 countries across the globe.

The Sechseläuten, meaning "the six o'clock ringing of the bells," is Zurich's spring festival that signifies the day that the day of work will start to end at 6, instead of 5, due to the extra hours of spring sunshine. The day was celebrated by burning the image of a snowman named the Böögg, which represented winter driving and spring welcome. It's also said these days that burning the Böögg is a way of predicting the weather for the coming season for the citizens of Zürich. The earlier the flames reach his head, the better the weather the season is expected to be.
