National holidays for March
Celebrating national holidays in March can be a lot of fun! March is an exciting time in the US, with patriotic celebrations and a variety of national holidays marking the start of spring. March is one of my favorite months to celebrate. I think it’s because we are coming out of the hum drums of the winter. The birds are singing and the flowers are blooming. Below is a list of some ways for you to make the most of the festivities. Here are some ideas:
St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) – Dress up in green and participate in a parade or attend a St. Patrick’s Day festival. You can also cook traditional Irish dishes like corned beef and cabbage or make green-themed treats like shamrock shakes.
International Women’s Day (March 8th) – Celebrate the women in your life by sending them cards or flowers, organizing a special event or fundraiser for women’s causes, or simply taking some time to reflect on the contributions women have made to society.
National Puppy Day (March 23rd) – If you have a furry friend, spoil them with extra treats and toys, take them on a long walk, or spend some quality time playing with them. You can also volunteer at a local animal shelter or make a donation to a pet-related charity.
National Pi Day (March 14th) – Bake a pie and share it with your friends or family. You can also host a pi-themed party or participate in a math-related activity. When my own children started middle school, it became a tradition to send in moon pies for their classmates as a way to celebrate Pi day, usually followed by a pizza pie dinner!
National Read Across America Day (March 2nd) – Set aside some time to read your favorite book or encourage others to read by donating books to a local school or library. You can also attend a literary event or participate in a book club. You can read about my read across America blog post here.
