Leave a comment

We start off on March 1st with AFWD 2019 aka Take your Action Figure to Work Day

Alex doesn’t want to be left out of the fun! 😉

We then segue into Mardi Gras on March 5 for those of us that like Fun! Beads optional! 🙂 

What happens after Fat Tuesday? why Ash Wednesday of Course! March 6th
For those that are about to start Lent, we feel for you! NO Meat Fridays, giving up something you really like for forty days! yes, I remember being forced to do that nonsense too! But it’s what you do for your faith! Remember!! Be nice to people!

And then it’s Mercury Retrograde 1st cycle of the year
Now depending on who you believe it starts on the fifth or the sixth! I’m going to go with the earlier date, better safe than sorry! lol 🙂

Remember Mercury is the God of Communication and most importantly try not to take things personally. They don’t really mean it. Some people will say offensive things and they don’t mean to, it’s just that their thinking is muddied and their communication skills are sub par right now. This won’t be forever only until March 28! for this cycle. oops 😛
PS- I’m not yelling, I swear! It’s just this is really important and so I used Caps lock. okay, I’ll take JiJi whapping me in the head with his tail, owies!!

Now for the important stuff!





And then on March 8th, it’s International Women’s Day
Re-read the above if you will be taking a trip for this most opportune day and weekend!

Looking back to my college days, like ten years ago. LOL 😀 I was to come up with a collage of my influences and that is representative of Me.  My influences: Rosie the Riveter- pretty self-explanatory I think. Gloria Steinem- I was a child of the ’70s and she told me I could do whatever I wanted! So yeah, had to have her in there. The Statue- I was looking for one of Pallas Athena-but couldn’t find a good one…so I ran across this one and I liked it. Reminds me of a woman running with a torch- to light the way! The Dancing Silhouettes those are my friends celebrating life! This was drawn by Sean O’Donnell and colored by Moi aka GroovyGoddess 😉

so many people hate this day! I love ❤ it!! Spring Forward and we get more daylight now!!
March 10th at 3am.

OMG we then have PI DAY 3/14

And the next day is the 15th the Ides of March which I remember as Cesear being killed, stabbed at the Senate. And that’s it. Apparently, there is other stuff too. So here’s a wiki link

And then it’s time to celebrate and get my Irish on! Oh right, Alex is helping here too!
March 17th Saint Patrick’s Day

And then Blessed Ostara Everyone on March 20th aka the Vernal Equinox

a very pretty Ostara altar, not mine but in case you need an example of what you could do!

International Women’s Day
March 8, 2015 in the World
International Women’s Day (IWD), also called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, including Russia.
In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. This is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons.

Daylight Saving Time
March 8, 2015 in North America
Most of the US, Canada and Mexico’s northern border cities will start Daylight Saving Time (DST) at 2 am (02:00) local time on March 08, 2015. The clocks will “spring forward” (by shifting the clock forward) an hour to daylight time, so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. The most of Europe will start DST on the last Sunday in March. Most of North America shifts at 02:00 local time, so its zones do not shift at the same time; for example, Mountain Time can be temporarily either zero or two hours ahead of Pacific Time.
Daylight saving time – also summer time in several countries – is the practice of advancing clocks so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn. The modern idea of daylight saving was first implemented during the First World War. Many countries have used it at various times since then.
The practice has been both praised and criticized. Adding daylight to evenings benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight after working hours, but can cause problems for evening entertainment and other occupations tied to the sun. Although an early goal of DST was to reduce evening usage of incandescent lighting, formerly a primary use of electricity, modern heating and cooling usage patterns differ greatly, and research about how Daylight Saving Time currently affects energy use is limited or contradictory.
Starting in 2007, most of the United States and Canada observe DST from the second Sunday in March to the first Sundayin November, almost two-thirds of the year. The 2007 US change was part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005; previously, from 1987 through 2006, the start and end dates were the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October, and Congress retains the right to go back to the previous dates now that an energy-consumption study has been done.
DST clock shifts present other challenges. They complicate timekeeping, and can disrupt meetings, travel, billing, recordkeeping, medical devices, heavy equipment, and sleep patterns. Software can often adjust computer clocks automatically, but this can be limited and error-prone, particularly when Daylight Saving Time protocols are changed.

Check Your Batteries Day
March 8, 2015 in North America
Today is Check Your Batteries Day. This annual “holiday” is observed on the second Sunday in March, which just so happens to coincide with Daylight Saving Time.
Check Your Batteries Day serves as an important reminder to test and replace the batteries on those very important life-saving devices like smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Deaths from fires and burns are the third leading cause of fatal home injury.” In 2010, one American died in a fire every 169 minutes!

 National Peanut Cluster Day
March 8, 2015 in the USA
This annually celebrated food holiday is all about melted chocolate mixed with peanuts that is a perfect combination for a sweet and salty deliciousness!
Peanut clusters are an easy to make snack that can be ready in just minutes.  Melt the chocolate, add in your peanuts, stir them together, drop them by spoonfuls into a “cluster” on waxed paper or foil, let them harden and then ENJOY!!  Remember to share!
These tasty crunchy treats have been around for many years dating back to before 1912 when they were made popular by the Goo Goo Cluster.  The Goo Goo Cluster candy bar is a peanut cluster that had marshmallow and caramel mixed with the chocolate and peanuts.

Women of Aviation Worldwide Week
March 2-8, 2015 in the World
Women of Aviation Worldwide Week {abbrv. WOAW Week} is an annual holiday during the week (Monday through Sunday) that includes March 8.
Women of Aviation Worldwide Week is officially defined as “an international celebration of all women of aviation, and their contribution to the betterment of the air and space industry.”
In January 2010, Mireille Goyer launched an international grassroots initiative to celebrate the centennial of the first female pilot license worldwide earned by Raymonde de Laroche on March 8, 1910. Her call to “Fly it forward” encouraged pilots from around the world to introduce record numbers of girls and women to aviation during, what was then dubbed, “Women Pilots’ Week” as a salute to the pioneering women pilots of 1910.
In 2011, the initiative morphed into “Women of Aviation Worldwide Week” as the world celebrated the centennial of International Women’s Day. Each year, a theme is selected to highlight the anniversary of significant international historical achievements of some outstanding women of aviation.

Dr. Seuss Day
March 2, 2015 in the World
Today is Dr. Seuss Day, a full twenty-four hours to make a mess with the Cat in the Hat, dance around with the Fox in Sox, hear a Who with Horton, count the red and blue fish, help the Grinch see the error of his ways, and listen to Sam I Am’s friend complain about his dish of green eggs and ham!
Theodor Seuss Geisel, commonly known by his pen name Dr. Seuss, was a writer, poet and cartoonist. Though best known as a children’s author (he released a whopping forty-six books for tykes), his career also saw him work as an illustrator for advertising campaigns and a political cartoonist during the Second World War. He was also a true perfectionist, known to discard 95% of his material before settling on a theme for a new book, sometimes spending up to a year writing a single story, and preferring payment upon completion, rather than in advance.
March 2nd is a celebration of his life and works, as it was on this day in 1904 that he entered the world. Having lived eighty-seven years and made an incredible impact on numerous generations, he died in 1991 at his home in La Jolla, California. His many bizarre, colourful and zany tales are still cherished by young and old alike, and, having been translated into more than twenty languages, are read all across the world every single day.
If you fancy paying a fitting tribute, we recommend dressing up with a friend as Thing 1 and Thing 2. All you need are blue wigs and red jumpsuits. Oh, and boundless energy!

National Banana Cream Pie Day
March 2, 2015 in the USA
It’s National Banana Cream Pie Day! People have been making pies filled with cream, pudding, and custard since the Medieval times. Similar inventions from that era include Napoleons, cream puffs, and éclairs.
Bananas arrived in the United States in the 1880s. By the early 1900s, banana recipes appeared in every major cookbook across the country.

Common embellishments include pecans or drizzles of chocolate and caramel.

Whuppity Scoorie is a traditional festival dating from the early 19th century observed by people in Lanark, Scotland to celebrate the approach of spring. Local children gather around the local St. Nicholas kirk where at 6 pm the wee bell is rung. This is the starting sign for the children to run around the church in an anticlockwise direction, making noise and swinging paper balls on strings above their heads as they run. It is no longer a race for safety reasons and to increase fairness for the younger participants. After three laps, they scramble for coins thrown by members of the Community Council who host the event. The Community Council also hosts a “Whuppity Scoorie Storytelling Festival” and art workshops after the event until March 7.

Pig Day
March 1, 2015 in the USA
National Pig Day is observed on March 01, 2015. National Pig Day is an event held annually in the United States to celebrate the pig. The holiday celebration was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley, a teacher in Lubbock, Texas, and Mary Lynne Rave of Beaufort, North Carolina. According to Rave the purpose of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.” The holiday is most often celebrated in the Midwest.
National Pig Day includes events at zoos, schools, nursing homes, and sporting events around the United States. It is also recognized at “pig parties” where pink pig punch and pork delicacies are served, and pink ribbon pigtails are tied around trees in the pigs’ honor. The question of whether the holiday is a time to honor pigs by “giving them a break” or to appreciate their offerings (spare ribs, bacon and ham) is an open question.

Beginning of meteorological spring
March 1, 2015 in Northern Hemisphere
In meteorology for the Northern hemisphere, spring begins on March 01, 2015. It is also called the beginning of meteorological spring. The meteorological seasons are divided according to the calendar months. Spring months are March, April and May.
Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons following winter and preceding summer. Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born. The term is also used more generally as a metaphor for the start of better times, as in the Prague Spring.
Unstable weather may more often occur during spring, when warm air begins on occasions to invade from lower latitudes, while cold air is still pushing on occasions from the Polar regions.
