It is called the Spring (Vernal) Equinox. It is the time of the year when day and night are nearly equal in length. When the sun crosses the true celestial equator from south to north. And so we celebrate the first day of spring. It is the time of year that pagans and neopagans celebrate as one of the eight major holidays/sabbats of the wiccan calendar and it is one of the four that fall on a solar event.
