March represents many different things for people. Two of the biggest things celebrated during March are the start 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 information on both that will help you prepare for the celebrations.
Spring Time Greatness
Spring, also known as the Vernal Equinox, officially begins on March 20th
Our clocks will spring ahead for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 12th
The term Spring or “springtime” refer 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: Camping, Fishing, Flying a Kite, Playing Mini Golf & Starting your garden! More activities can be found here!
All Things Green
St. Patrick’s Day, commonly referred to as St. Paddy’s Day, is on March 17th
Corned Beef & Cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dish that originated in New York and not Ireland. Find some great Irish recipes here!
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. Take a look here!
