Happy Autumn Equinox!

Today is the autumn equinox. That means there will be an equal split of day and night hours and we welcome the season best known to most for pumpkins and firework displays. Historically, for Learn To Uke, this has been a time to welcome our new courses. More about that later…

Here are a couple of Dictionary Definitions:

autumn/ˈɔːtəm
– BRITISH: the season after summer and before winter, in the northern hemisphere from September to November and in the southern hemisphere from March to May.
– ASTRONOMY: the period from the autumn equinox to the winter solstice.

equinox/ˈiːkwɪnɒks,ˈɛkwɪnɒks – noun: equinox; plural noun: equinoxes
– late Middle English: from Old French equinoxe or Latin aequinoctium, from aequi- ‘equal’ + noxnoct- ‘night’.
– The time or date (twice each year) at which the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night are of equal length (about 22 September and 20 March).

We were lucky with the lighting this morning, as you can see from the post header photograph. Wishing you all a wonderful Autumn Equinox and may you harvest the rewards from all of your ukulele practice this year!

As mentioned, historically, for Learn To Uke, this season has been a time to welcome our new courses. We have been working on that over summer and are eagerly awaiting our lovely edits and animations to come back so we can share some of that with you. Sign up if you want to hear more:
