Every year, regardless of weather, the Westerly Morris Men celebrate the vernal equinox and the first day of spring with a pre-dawn hike up to the summit of Lantern Hill in North Stonington, Connecticut. There, they sing and dance to help the sun come up.

The hike and celebration is a 28 year tradition for this particular dance team, as captured above in 2012, but Morris dance, a form of English folk dance, dates back as early as 1448.

Watch a few more traditions, including our favorite spring tradition: this MGM Happy Harmonies cartoon from 1936, To Spring.
