Festival of Life in the Cracks Day
annually on March 10th
Festival of Life in the Cracks Day celebrates the first signs of spring weather, such as sprouts of greenery that come up from cracks in sidewalks. It is a day to celebrate rebirth and renewal in life, and it is a day to see beauty and life everywhere. Festival of Life in the Cracks Day is not for sitting inside, but for venturing out and celebrating with your neighbors, and seeing beauty in life, even if it is found in cracks on the ground.
How to Observe
Celebrate the day by going outside and looking for life in the cracks. Spring is less than two weeks away, and greenery and life should be just starting to sprout. Look for events in your community, or come up with ways to celebrate the day on your own. There are so many things you could do. One community has celebrated the day with poetry, planting, and museum exhibits.
