This past winter has been the coldest on record of the last 10 years. Why? I have no clue. One thing is for certain, it made me curl up more often with my kindle under a blanket on the couch in front of my (broken) fireplace.
Still, I am looking forward to spring, which begins somewhere between March 19-21. Mostly, because that is when all the bride romances come out!
Here are some fun facts about March:
Symbols of March
Birthstone: aquamarine and bloodstone
Zodiac signs: Pisces and Aries
The name March comes from the Roman god of war, Mars. For many years, March, being the start of spring, was also the start of the New Year. Much of Europe used March as the start of the year. Britain used March 25th as the beginning of the New Year until 1752. Of course, it holds St. Patty’s Day, Pi Day, National women’s Month and Daylight Savings Day (wish we could get rid of this one).
