We’ve gathered the best celebrations in April. If you’re looking for a great excuse to have fun, you’ll find it in this article!
Spring begins in March but as we leave the month behind, the season will continue to bloom in April. The name of the month is derived from the Latin verb “Aperio” which means “to open.” Although we all love the cold breeze of the night, Spring is a time for finding a new purpose, renewal, beginning, and planting new ideas. Oh and the longer days of embracing the sunshine underneath us makes us feel glorious. Watch out because it’s not an old trick; Celebrations in April will make you adore the greens, the skies, and drizzles!
