March has arrived, not quite like a lion, but with a little more bluster than a lamb. Spring is rumoured to be right around the corner; daffodils and pussywillows are whispering it is so. We have an interesting calendar of March events lined up at Off the Vine, a preview of which is below and some "holidays" we may find a way to "create" a celebration around.
March is National Irish American Heritage Month, National Nutrition Month, National Peanut Month and National Women's History Month.
3/3 - If Pets Had Thumbs Day - just think of the possibilities if your pet had an opposable thumb!
3/3 - Is also National Anthem Day. The Star Spangled Banner officially became our National Anthem on March 3, 1931.
3/4 - Hug a GI Day! Although the origin cannot be documented this explanation from Sabrina Honda, USAF sounds plausible; she believes the origin is because of the date. It is the only date in the calendar that is an order ... March Fourth! Whatever the origin, shaking the hand or giving a hug to a GI is always in order to say thank you for all they give.
3/5 - National Multiple Personality Day - unfortunately none of the personalites recorded the origin of this day.
