March came in like the proverbial lion. From what I can tell, Leo has no intention of moving on any time soon. What do those ground hogs know anyway? Besides the wild life report, there is a lot of stuff that goes on in March. Tomorrow, for instance is Cinco De Marcho. It begins March 5 and goes until March 17. Yup. It’s a real thing. Look it up.
Then March 14 is National Pi Day. Some of us like to acknowledge the day by eating a piece of our favorite pie. If you are a mathematician you could measure the entire pie by 2PR or PD, of course. Then divvy up the pie using fun formulas and algorithms.
Moving right along to the Ides of March on the 15th. You might want to hunker down in your residence until it passes. You know what happened to Julius Caesar.
Two days later on the 17th, the world turns green and everyone becomes Irish. As noted above Cinco De Marcho morphs into St. Patrick’s Day.
As if that isn’t enough, March Madness begins that week. For non- sports fans, March Madness is the annual NCAA’s big basketball tournament. It’s a whirlwind one-and-done kind of tournament with brackets and Cinderella teams and hoops fans going a little nuts.
In the midst of the Madness March 20 presents us with an awesome triple-header. Part one is the Spring equinox. Hopefully incessant bleating of lambs would have sent the snow, ice and wind-spewing lion slinking off to some Artic tundra. It is all about the lambs by then.
Part two is International Earth Day. The earth needs our help to ensure our children and grandchildren have a habitable environment in which to live.
Part three (my personal favorite) is the United Nations International Day of Happiness. Let’s spread happiness. Even a simple smile can make someone’s day.
If none of the above tickle your fancy, you could go with March 26 which is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. Yup. It’s a real thing. Look it up.
