Forward, March 
And Welcome Spring,
When Bunnies Bounce
And Birds All Sing.

When March Winds Blow
The Winter Away, 
They Get The World
Ready For April & May. 

Can you believe we’ve entered into the third month of the year, I can’t!! It’s 23 degrees here today and we had a little ice and snow over the weekend but as fast as time is going it will soon be hot, school will be out and I’ll be posting about the 4th of July. Today we are going to start something new, looking at what special events and days are coming up in the month of March. There are hundreds of events on the calendar every year and each one is given a day of the year to be remembered or celebrated, some of them very popular like St. Patrick’s Day and some of them more obscure like National Cheese Doodle Day which is tomorrow. So, here we go with a peek at March and just a few of the fun things you can enjoy and celebrate during the month. Enjoy!!! (above via)

March 5: Fat Tuesday

The last day to celebrate and splurge before Lent begins. (via)

March 6: National Oreo Day

There are as many flavors of Oreos as there is Ice Cream, pick one and share it with your family and friends…or not. (via)


March 9: National Barbie Day

Hard to believe but Barbie is celebrating 60 years this year. She was unveiled at the New York Toy Fair in 1959. You Go Girl!!! (via)

March 10: Daylight Savings Time Begins

Seems like we just moved back one hour and now it’s already time to turn the clocks forward one hour. I really wish we would pick a time and stick with it. (via)

March 11: National Funeral Director & Mortician Recognition Day

In the little town where I grew up, we all knew the Funeral Director, you had two choices, either the one at Weatherford or the one in Hinton. We knew their family, went to school and church with them and their families had been burying our families for generations. Give your local Funeral Director a hug and if you aren’t following Life With A Mortician’s Wife on Facebook and other social media you should be. (via)

March 14: National Potato Chip Day

Whether they’re homemade or store-bought, grab a bag of your favorite Lays, Ruffles, or Doritos and celebrate National Potato Chip Day. Bet you can’t eat just one. (via

March 16: National Panda Day

How could you not want to celebrate one of the cutest creatures in the world that can rip you apart? Aren’t they adorable?!?! (via)

March 18: National Sloppy Joe Day

Growing up we all loved a good Manwich and now there are a ton of great recipes for you to make your own Sloppy Joes. (via)

March 19: National Poultry Day

Whether you want to pet them or pluck them and fry them, today’s the day to celebrate all things Poultry. 

March 21: National Common Courtesy Day and National French Bread Day

Think of the possibilities today, being kind to one another and a good french toast or sandwich made with French Bread. (via & via)

March 24: Chocolate Covered Raisins Day

My favorite snack at the movies is Chocolate Covered Raisins, so maybe I’ll see a flick today and imbibe in some chocolate covered raisiness. (via)

March 25: Tolkien Reading Day

One of our favorite authors at our house, we’ve read all his books multiple times and never tire of them. If you like fantasy and have never read Tolkien then today is the day to start or maybe read a chapter or two. (via)

March 27: Spanish Paella Day & Little Red Wagon Day

Spanish Paella is my favorite Sea Food Dish and everyone needs a Little Red Wagon in their life, no matter how old they are. (via & via)

March 28: National Something On A Stick Day

The possibilities are endless, apparently, there’s nothing that’s not better served on a stick. (via)

March 30: National Take A Walk In The Park Day

Take a moment on this day and take a stroll through your local park, enjoy the great outdoors for a little while. (via)

March 31: National Crayon Day & National Tater Day

This is a day to celebrate two of my favorite things, Crayons, and Taters. Whatever your age, grab a box of Crayons and some paper or coloring book and color away while munching on Tater Tots. Do you like Ketchup or Ranch? Or both? (via & via)

There you have it, a peek at some of the Fun Days you can celebrate in the month of March. To see all of the official and not so official National Days of the Month visit National Day Calendar here. Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow. Enjoy!!!

Words are my own.
