It's an Urban Fantasy Springtime!

Happy Spring, Leaguers! Now is the time when werewolves's thoughts turn to mating rituals and vampires enjoy a little sleeping in thanks to Daylight's Savings Time.


I think most UFers would profess a preference for autumn with its associations with Halloween and Samhain, but I think Spring is also an equally ripe time to explore in urban fantasy. From the Leprechauns of St. Patrick's Day to the fertility rituals involving eggs and creepy rabbits breaking into our houses, the season is full of festivals and symbols easily incorporated into any UF. After all, it's also the season when many Christians celebrate the moment when their favorite guy returns from the dead.

What other Urban Fantasy twists can you think of for Spring?
