Easter with urban VHA cars

Did you know?

In April, on the Northern Hemisphere it is spring when everything in nature opens. Trees and gardens start to flower, the air smells sweet and fresh, animals come out of hibernation, the birds fly back from the South to settle, and bees and butterflies begin their diligent work picking the nectar from the flowers and trees. However, in the Southern Hemisphere, April is Autumn and the harvest season. The fruits are ripening and ready for picking, trees transform from green to a rainbow of colours, people are catching the last sunny days to enjoy the warmth and many are excited about the four day Easter holiday.

The first day of April

The first day of April begins with April Fool’s day. It is not known for sure why and when this day was proclaimed fool’s day, but it has been bringing joy and fun to people for a long time. On April 1st people usually do funny pranks to family and friends and then say “April fools”!

April’s birthstone is the diamond. The zodiac signs for people born between 21 March and 19 April is Aries and Taurus sign are for those born between 20 April – 20 May. The birth flower of April is typically the Sweet Pea or the Daisy.

April is also a great month for weddings, with the weather still warm but not too hot, and the trees making for a beautiful backdrop for photos.
