March represents many different things for people. Two of the biggest things celebrated during March are the First Day of Spring and St. Patrick’s Day! What’s not to love about either one of those?! Below you will find some fun facts and useful information on both that will help you in preparation for the celebrations to come.
Spring Time Greatness:
Spring, also known as the Vernal Equinox, officially begins on March 20th. This is official the first day of Spring! Our clocks will spring forward for Daylight Saving on Sunday, March 11th.
The term Spring or “springtime” refers to the idea of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. The season Spring brings with it the ability to start enjoying more outside activities that you may not be able to do in the Winter season. These can include: Starting your own garden, hiking , running, or playing a round of mini golf! More fun activities can be found at http://www.realsimple.com/work-life/entertainment/spring-activities
All Things Green:
St. Patrick’s Day, commonly referred to as St. Paddy’s Day, is on March 17th.
The popularity of Shamrocks and Four Leaf Clovers stems from St. Patrick using these plants to explain the holy trinity to the Irish. St. Patrick’s Day cannot be complete unless you are wearing green and everything around you is green! When celebrating, some show their Irish pride more than others.
