As I am posting this on 10th (incidentally, my lovely sister's birthday!), I have missed a couple, but here you go -
1st - St David's Day.
8th - Shrove Tuesday - Oooh - Pancake Day! Yum!
14th - Save a Spider Day.
Spiders are fascinating creatures -
8-legged, air breathing arthropods.
There are approximately 40,000 species of spider.
Most spiders have 4 pairs of eyes.
Sizes range from 0.015" to 10"!! There are no spiders on Antarctica. Arachnophobia - A fear of spiders.
But no matter how scared you are of them, you have got to agree, their webs are beautiful!
17th - St Patrick's Day.
27th - BRITISH SUMMERTIME BEGINS - Please tell the weather!
Flower of March - Daffodil.
Birthstone - Aquamarine.
The phrase 'Mad as a March Hare' is derived from the eccentric behaviour of hares which supposedly only occurs during this month - their breeding season. This odd behaviour can include the boxing of other hares & jumping up into the air for no reason what-so-ever!
The most famous mad 'March Hare' is Lewis Carroll's character from 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' appearing at the tea party.
As a celebration of the bright sunny weather we are having, try decorating your favourite loaf cake with springtime flowers.
