Once the chill of winter really makes its mark in February, we have hope for the springtime to make its way to our doorsteps. The days slowly become longer, and the temperature starts to rise bit by bit. It's March! This is a month that's particularly thought of as a time of transitions. The old adage 'March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb' really rings true, as the weather sends us showers of snow that turn into rain, and eventually the month generally ends on a calm note as rising temperatures slowly beckon nature back from its winter slumber. White and gray shades gradually turn into bright specks of green, and we have hope for new life.
During this exciting period of seasonal transition, we wanted to give the YumeTwins family gifts that will help you make the most out of the renewal that the beginning of springtime brings! That's why we've prepared our March 2020 box theme carefully and we'd like to introduce you to: Spring Cleaning!
Don't like cleaning so much? Well, we definitely understand that *tee-hee* ! However, we're not here to remind you to do your chores; rather, we want to give you a fun and enjoyable way to help you think of spring cleaning as not a "to-do" but instead something to look forward to! We'll be giving you the proper tools and cute goodies to help you spark your own joy in your living space and keep clean & tidy surroundings. Stay tuned to our social media for the first three box item reveals! Let's take the bore out of the chore!
These are YumeTwins' Four R's of spring:
Refresh, Renew, Recharge, and Rebirth!
Let's keep these in mind as we go throughout the month!
The phrase 'spring cleaning' is well known in the English-speaking world. But did you know that in Japan it's not really known at all? In Japan, as well as in many other nations of the world, a springtime clean is not necessarily the culture. There is more of a focus on a huge cleaning spree right before New Years. We can totally get behind that as well, but we like to think of the spring cleaning period as a sort of mini-renewal–a second chance to start the year fresh!
What kinds of traditions do you have for the biggest cleaning of the year in your country? We'd love to hear about it, so be sure to share in the comments!
