March 12: Clocks Go Forward
On March 12th, clocks “spring forward” one hour for Daylight Saving Time. While losing an hour of sleep can be tough, the longer daylight hours in the evening mean more opportunities for outdoor activities and fun. It’s also a sign that spring is on its way and summer is just around the corner!
For those who struggle with the change, be sure to get some extra rest, stay hydrated, and try to stick to your regular sleep schedule to adjust to the new time.
March 13: March Break
March Break is an eagerly anticipated time for students and families across North America. The week-long break typically occurs in mid-March and offers students a much-needed respite from their studies. It’s a time to relax, recharge, and enjoy some quality time with family and friends. Many families take advantage of this break to go on vacations or plan fun activities for their children.
This year, March Break runs from Monday, March 15 to Friday, March 17, 2023.
March 17: St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th each year to honor the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. This date is traditionally believed to be the day that St. Patrick died in the year 461 AD. Over time, St. Patrick’s Day evolved into a celebration of Irish culture, with parades, music, dancing, and wearing green. Today, it’s a widely celebrated holiday not only in Ireland but also in many other parts of the world with large Irish communities.

March 20: First Day of Spring!
March 20th marks the first day of spring, also known as the Vernal Equinox. On this day, the amount of daylight and darkness is nearly equal in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
It’s a time of renewal and rebirth, as plants start to bloom, trees bud, and animals come out of hibernation. Spring is also associated with new beginnings, growth, and change. It’s a great time to start fresh, set new goals, and let go of the old.
So let’s embrace the energy of spring and look forward to longer days, warmer weather, and all the wonderful possibilities that the new season brings.
