What to Celebrate This Month

What to Celebrate in March

As we get older time seems to go by faster and faster and before we know it another month has gone by. But before we let this month slip away let’s find a reason to celebrate! Here are some unconventional holidays to celebrate in March.

If you are looking for reasons to celebrate in the month of March, then you are in luck! From the traditional St. Patty’s Day to wacky holidays like “if your pets has thumbs day”, you’ll always have a reason to celebrate this month!

Everyone knows that March is the month of the Irish, but you may not know that March is also National Women’s Month! Two amazing reasons to celebrate all month long, but it doesn’t stop there. March is also Social Workers Month and National Nutrition Month. Summer bod here we come!

March Fun Fact: March is the 2 week of National Bubble Week!

Along with Marching being National Peanut Month, you can start the celebrating off with a bang by overloading on your favorite peanutty snack with Nation Peanut Butter Lover’s day on March 1st! For a fun take on peanut butter check out Toast Cafe in Dilworth and order their Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast!

March Fun Fact: March 15th or better known as “Beware the Ides of March” Day is the official start of spring in the Roman calendar. But you may not know that it originated when Julius Caesar was told to “beware the Ides of March,” which he didn’t and was stabbed by Brutus!

March 12th is Plant a Flower Day and there is no better way to kick off spring than with helping out our wonderful planet! Schedule a group class with Plant Nite for a fun way try out your green thumb and to get ready for spring!

If you love celebrating for no reason, then this holiday is perfect for you! March 26th is known as Make Your Own Holiday Day and there’s no limit to the things you can celebrate. Create a one of a kind holiday that you can remember for years to come and enjoy it with your favorite people in the most amazing city!

As March comes to a close, take a stroll on the 30th for Take a Walk in the Park Day. With April right around the corner, there is no better way to enjoy the start of spring and of a new month!

Run, bike or walk to Freedom Park and spend some time reflecting over the last month and say goodbye to the Ides of March and hello to the lovely month of April!
