Welcome to March, everyone!

March is the third month of our calendar year. It's named after the ancient Roman god of war, Mars. In Australia's part of the southern hemisphere, March is the beginning of a new season, autumn, and the coming of the cold dark months of winter. But in the northern hemisphere, the opposite happens. March heralds the beginning of spring and the coming of the golden days of summer.

There are lots of holidays and special days celebrated around the world during the month of March. Such as the autumn or spring equinoxes, International Earth Hour, International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Honen Matsuri (a harvest and fertility festival) in Japan, the Jewish Passover (if it falls within March), the Christian celebration of Easter (if it also falls within March), and the day when everyone can be Irish for one day: St Patrick's Day.

However, did you know that in March, we also celebrate holidays that are just a little bit on the wacky, weird and sometimes absolutely kooky side? Here's what March has in store for you!

March 3
I want you to be happy day

March 4
March Forth and Do Something Day

Today plays on the words, march fourth, which when spoken out loud sounds like march forth: an expression used to convey action and moving forward. Why not celebrate today by starting something that you have always wanted to do, but have never had the chance to?

March 5
Learn What Your Name Means Day

Do some research to find out the out the origin and history of your name, first and last. Maybe you'll find a great tale behind your name!

March 6

If you haven't been to see your dentist in a while, use this day to make an appointment with them.

Alfred Hitchcock Day

Today celebrates the life, times, and work of master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. Why not gather your friends or family and do a Hitchcock movie marathon? Some of his more famous movies include Psycho, Vertigo, and The Birds.

March 15
Everything you think is wrong day

Today is a gentle reminder that we are all imperfect. Think over things that you think are wrong and spend some time correcting them.

March 16
Everything you do is right day

Today encourages people to believe that no matter what happened before today (especially when everything was wrong!), then everything they do on today will turn out great. So spend time with positive people, do whatever makes you happy today, or if you know of someone who is having a bad day, brighten up their day and pay it forward.

March 18
Absolutely Incredible Kid day

Inspire the children in your life today by telling them that they are awesome and that they can do incredible things.

Near Miss Day

Today is an annual reminder of the day in 1989 when an asteroid nearly collided with the Earth. The 300-meter wide asteroid was called 4581 Asclepius. Experts estimate that if the asteroid had hit the Earth, the resulting collision would have released energy equal to about 1000 atom bombs!
