I don't know about you, but to me, not only is winter dull, dark and depressing, it also seems to be very dirty and grimy!
The streets are damp and muddy, there's salt and grit everywhere and it all inevitably, ends up being walked into our homes.
We have the doors and windows closed constantly at home to keep the heat in, there's no fresh air circulating and the use of fires and central heating seems to increase the amount of dust.
The long nights are over! Increased number of daylight hours is good for the mind, body and soul.
Springtime is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life being born, and of the cycle of life once again starting. It is also seen more generally as the start of better times. At this time of year, we begin to feel less sluggish and become more open to inviting changes – both big and small – into our lives.
