March 2020

Welcome March 2020!

It doesn't seem like it now, but March is the first month of spring and brings with it the promise of warmer, sunny days, as Earth turns its frostbitten cheek and emerges from winter and springs to the vernal equinox.

 

In come the March winds,
They blow and blow,
They sweep up the brown leaves
That green ones may grow.

–George Washington Wright Houghton, American poet (1850–91)

 

  • March 8: International Women’s Day. 

  • March 8: Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 A.M. Don’t forget to “spring forward” and set your clocks ahead one hour! 

  • March 15: The Ides of March. Legend surrounds this ill-fated day. Beware the Ides of March!

  • March 17: St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick was patron saint and national apostle of Ireland who is credited with successfully bringing Christianity to Ireland.

  • March 19: The vernal equinox, also called the Spring Equinox, marking the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, occurs on Thursday, March 19, at 11:49 P.M. EDT. On this day, the Sun rises due east and sets due west. In the Southern Hemisphere, this date marks the autumnal equinox. Read more about the First Day of Spring!

  • The Borrowing Days: According to lore, the last three days of March have a reputation for being stormy. Read about the Borrowing Days.

  • Easter Sunday: This year, Easter Sunday will occur on April 12, culminating the Holy Week for Christian churches and commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Easter is a “movable feast” and does not have a fixed date; however, it is always held on a Sunday.  As a rule, Easter Sunday is always held on the first Sunday after the paschal full Moon, which is the full Moon after the spring equinox.
