When it gets to this time of year, most people are desperate to shake off the Winter blues and embrace the coming Summer months. The clocks change and the nights get lighter, and everyone is out buying sandals and sunglasses, in anticipation of their Summer holiday. It seems to me that Spring almost gets skipped over, like Autumn- kind of sidelined by the big players – Summer and Winter. But, I love Spring. The fresh air, growing flowers and cool crisp mornings. It’s a time when everyone breathes a sigh of relief, and people lift their heads and take in the scenery on their way to work, instead of dodging the Winter weather. Amongst the many bank holidays, Easter takes prime place. This happy occasion brings tradition and fun and as well as its obvious religious sentiments, people embrace activities such as rolling painted eggs down a hill and egg hunts.
Spring has proven to be a very popular time of year for family occasions such as Christenings and Weddings. Many opt for this time of year as Summer is generally a busier time, with people booking holidays, which could potentially clash with events, and Winter sees people saving for Christmas. Christenings are especially popular around Easter, for religious reasons and so, it is no surprise that we find many people ordering Wedding Invitations and Thank You cards as well as Christening Invitations and Thank You cards.
