March Fun Facts and Folklore
March brings with it the promise of gardening and warm sunny days, as Earth turns its frostbitten cheek to winter and springs forth from the vernal equinox. Read about this month’s holidays, happenings, seasonal recipes, gardening tips, moon phases, folklore, and much more!
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 CALENDAR
The month of March was named for the Roman god of war, Mars. Traditionally, this was the time of year to resume military campaigns that had been interrupted by winter.
  • International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th
  • Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 10, at 2:00 A.M. Don’t forget to set your clocks forward!
  • St. Patrick’s Day is March 17. It falls on a Sunday this year.
  • On St. Patrick’s Day, the warm side of a stone turns up, and the broad-back goose begins to lay.

  • The Ides of March falls on March 15 and has long been considered an ill-fated day. Beware the Ides of March!
  • The vernal equinox, also called the Spring Equinox, marking the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, occurs on Wednesday, March 20 at 5:58 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.
  • According to lore, the last three days of March have a reputation for being stormy.
  • Easter Sunday arrives on April 21, 2019, culminating the Holy Week for Christian churches and commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • A wet spring, a dry harvest.
  • March comes in with adders’ heads and goes out with peacocks’ tails.
  • Thunder in spring, Cold will bring.
  • So many mists in March you see, So many frosts in May will be.
  • In beginning or in end, March its gifts will send.
  • Bleak winds assault us all around;
    Dances aloft, or skims the ground:
    See the school-boy-his hat in hand,
    While on the path he scarce can stand

  FOLKLORE FOR THE SEASON

March’s birth flower is the daffodil or jonquil. The daffodil signifies regard or unrequited love. The jonquil means “I desire a return of affection.”
March’s birthstone is the aquamarine. This gem is a type of beryl; its color can be pale to dark blue, greenish-blue, or blue-green; deep, intense blue versions are more valuable.
March’s Zodiac signs are Pisces (February 20 to March 20) and Aries (March 21 to April 20).
