Named for the Roman god of war, Mars, March is the third month of the year. It has 31 days and is known as the first month of spring in the Northern Hemisphere due to the vernal equinox which occurs between March 19th and 21st of every year.
Sunday, March 8 is the start of Daylight Saving Time, which begins at 2:00 A.M. that night. Don’t forget to “spring forward” and set your clocks ahead one hour! We prefer to do this before bedtime on Saturday night, just so there’s no existential confusion the next morning.
March 8 is also International Women’s Day, which is a day that not only celebrates the achievements of women and the progress made toward women’s rights, but also brings attention to ongoing struggles for equality around the world.
