Special Days in March

March is a month that is full of special days. We don’t have any holidays where we don’t have to work, at least at my job, but there are still  interesting days to celebrate.

Casa de Diego de Ordaz - Spanish Conquistador - Coyoacan - Historic Buildings - MexicoWe start out with a date that I like to joke about. Today is March Forth and Conquer Day. I have written a couple posts about this day. See also March Forth and Conquer II.

The picture above is of a plaque on the wall of the Casa de Diego de Ordaz who was a Spanish Conquistador. He definitely marched forth and conquered.

Big Ben - Elizabeth Tower - Clock Tower - Most Photographed Clock - London, England - Iconic ClockSunday March 13 is another special day that you need to be careful that you don’t forget about. It is the beginning of Daylight Saving Time. Don’t forget to change your clock.

For more about Daylight Saving Time, see my post: Clock Change Time

Pumpkin Pie - Pi Day - 3.14 - March 14March 14 is Pi Day. I always like significant numbers, so when it is 3/14  I have to think about pi.

Purim begins on the 16th. Do you know what Purim celebrates?

William Leeper Family - Irish Family - Shenandoa, Iowa - Old Family PortraitSt. Patrick’s Day is of course on the 17th. I have written several posts about my Irish Heritage through the years.

California Poppy - Spring in California - First Day of Spring - Orange PoppyOn to the 20th and the Vernal Equinox. This day marks the beginning of spring and I know that this is something many of my family and friends back in the Midwest are looking forward to. Will spring follow the calendar?

mother and son, birthdays, familyMarch 29 is also special for me as it is my Mom’s birthday. Oh, and I cannot forget my youngest brother as he was born on her birthday.

Are you ready to celebrate the special days of March?
