Welcome to March

Daffodils--the March Flower

The month of March is here.  February seemed even shorter than the shortest month.  That might have had something to do with being in Washington, D. C. for the first week of February (and getting the trip lengthened a couple of days because of the snow storm.)

March was the first month of the year in ancient times.  It was named for Mars, the Roman god of war.  It was the first month of the year because Spring began in March.  Under the Gregorian calendar, March is the third month of the year.

March is the home of Dr. Suess’ Birthday (the 2nd), Pi Day (the 14th or 3.14), Save a Spider Day (also the 14th), Saint Patrick’s Day (the 17th), the vernal equinox (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), and, if you like a sale, March 30 is the day of perhaps with best deal in history–the day the United States purchased Alaska.

So, here’s to a good March.
