4. March Fun Facts


Ah, March is finally here! The beginning of March also conjures thoughts of spring and warmer days, with the spring equinox just three weeks away. To celebrate the impending return of spring, some fun facts about the third month in the Gregorian calendar year have been listed below, courtesy of Fun Trivia, Express.co.uk and Ducksters.

1. The word March does not have to do from the homonym, which means to walk deliberately. Instead, the name of the month dates back the Roman calendar. March was named for Mars, the Roman god of war.

2. March was the first month of the year until the Gregorian calendar began to be used in 1752.

3. March was called Hlyda or Lide in Old English, which is a reference to the loud winds.

4. An old proverb says, “March comes in a like a lion, and goes out like a lamb,” which is reference to winter ending and spring beginning. Another popular saying is “March is mad as a hare,” which is a reference to the animals fighting each other.

5. Not only is March Women’s History Month, but it’s also American Red Cross Month and Fire Prevention Month. Other popular holidays are Read Across America (March 2, which is Dr. Seuss’ birthday), St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), Pi Day (March 14), Daylights Saving Day, Purim, and sometimes Easter even happens during the month.

6. People born in the beginning and middle of March are Pisces. Those born from March 21 on are Aries. Pisces are ruled by Neptune, which makes them dreamy, creative and intuitive. Aries are ruled by Mars, which makes them energetic, daring and spontaneous.

7. Aquamarine and the bloodstone are the birthstones for March. Both stones stand for courage.

8. There are different reports about the true “birth flower.” Some says it’s the daffodil and others say it’s violet.

9. Some famous people born in March are “James Bond” actor Daniel Craig, celebrated children’s author Dr. Seuss, actress Jessica Biel, teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber, actress Eva Mendes, basketball star Shaquille O’Neal, “Orange is the New Black” actress Lauren Prepon, tattoo artist Kat Von D, theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, reality star Rob Kardashian, “Maroon 5” front man Adam Levine, “Die Hard” star Bruce Willis, Oscar-nominee Reese Witherspoon, Lady Gaga and Grammy winner Elton John.
