#8 Fun and Frugal Family Tradition for Spring Equinox

I love singing together... how the family gathers around the piano and sings familiar songs...

There are so few spring songs around, and that's a pity. You could take your favorite carols and write new lyrics to them. After all, that's what has happened during the last 1000 years in Europe, people took the familiar tunes and wrote a new, meaningful text to them and then sang them so often people got used to them, and started singing them too.

You could go caroling with your family. In Sweden there is a tradition around May Day, that the university students gather around to sing spring songs as a choir. Nothing stops you from doing that already at Ostara. It is spring and it is a lovely thing.
