Happy March, friends! Bulbs are coming up, days are getting longer, and we’ve got a whole new month of celebrations, of course! From Women of Color Day, to National Napping Day, to Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day, and National Respect Your Cat Day, there’s a whole lot to celebrate. Read on to see what’s getting our panties in a bunch this month!
March starts off awesome with Women of Color Day (March 1) and Hop on Pop for Dr. Seuss Day (March 2)! March 3 brings a few celebrations with National Mulled Wine Day, National Salesperson Day, and Unique Names Day. Bonus points if your’re buying your mulled wine from someone named Thor. On March 4 the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra plays the Music of Prince, and it’s also Grammar Day- be the grammar police! The week ends with tons of Oreos for National Oreo Day (March 6).
Birthdays this week: Aragorn (1), Dr. Seuss and John Irving (2), and George Michael Bluth (3).
March 8 is a great day! It’s International Women’s Day. Celebrate the women in your life, and the women you look up to. And don’t forget, KU is a women owned business! March 9 is Popcorn Lovers Day and Get Over It Day. Get over your love of popcorn. But STUFFING YOUR FACE WITH IT! On March 10 tell us your middle name, pack your lunch, play your bagpipes, and generally be awesome because it’s Middle Name Pride Day, National Pack Your Lunch Day, International Bagpipe Day, and Day Of Awesomeness. Oh, and don’t forget Mario Day! It’sameeeeee! Plant an apple tree and wear dat fannypack on March 11 for International Fanny Pack Day and Johnny Appleseed Day. Turn your clocks forward and BASK in that extra daylight because daylight saving time begins on March 12. And on the 13, take a nap from your circadian rhythm being all disturbed and shit on National Napping Day. This week ends with National Potato Chip Day, Steak and BJ Day, Celebrate Scientists Day, and Pi Day on March 14. You know what to do.
