Let's Celebrate the Day
Most of our desk calendars only show the most recognized holidays and events; they do not include the unique holidays that could or maybe should be celebrated. Almost everyday of the year is recognized as a special day for some reason or another. There are days dedicated to foods, drinks, fun, jobs and serious issues. You name it, and there is probably a special day for it.

In my search to find the most complete yearly calendar that included not only well-recognized holidays but also the bizarre and unusual ones, I, of course, went online. There you can find many different websites that offer this information, and from them, I created my listing.
For the month of March, my desk calendar shows these events and special holidays:
March 5 – Ash Wednesday
March 9 – Daylight Saving Time Begins
March 17 – St. Patrick’s Day
March 20 – First Day of Spring
Now, as Emeril would say, “Bam!” let’s “Kick it up a notch!” and “Feel the love” for these March holidays that are fun and unique.
