All Month: Music in Our Schools Month

March is the time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the U.S. It started as a single statewide celebration in 1973 and grew to a month in 1985. The goal of Music in Our Schools Month is to raise awareness about the importance of music education for all kids, and remind everyone that school is where all kids should have access to music.

March 2: Dr. Seuss’ Birthday

He was a famous American writer and cartoonist who wrote many amazing books for kids, including Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Some of his stories have even been made into feature-length movies, including How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Horton Hears a Who.

March 3: Magha Puja Day (Buddhist)

March 4: Holi (Hindu)

Holi is also called the Festival of Colours. It is a popular Hindu spring festival that’s observed in India, Guyana, Trinidad, the U.K. and Nepal, On the first day of Holi, huge bonfires are built to burn the demoness Holika. On the second day, people throw coloured powder and water at each other to fend off illness and disease, which are associated with the coming of spring.

March 5: Purim (Judaism)

On Purim Jewish people all over the world celebrate the deliverance of the Jewish people from the ancient Persian Empire.

March 8: International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s, which was a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world. Women’s inequality and oppression during that time caused many women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for change. In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter work hours, better pay and voting rights.

March 14: Albert Einstein’s Birthday

One of the greatest scientific minds that ever lived – Albert Einstein – was born on March 14, 1879, to a Jewish family in Germany. He is best known for his theory of relativity, expressed by the equation E = mc2. In 1921, Einstein received the Nobel Prize in Physics.

March 17: St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is an annual feast day celebrating Saint Patrick, one of the patron saints of Ireland. While it is a national holiday in Ireland, it’s not an official holiday in North America, even though many people love to celebrate it. In fact, in Chicago, they even dye the Chicago River green to celebrate on March 17!

March 19: The Swallows Return to Capistrano

Every year, the famous cliff swallows (a type of bird) leave the site of their winter vacation (Argentina) and fly back north to San Juan, California, for the summer. The funny thing is, the birds always land at the mission in San Juan on or around March 19 – St. Joseph’s Day – to the ringing of the bells of the old church and a crowd of visitors who come from all over the world to await the swallows’ arrival and celebrate it with a fiesta (party) and a parade.

March 20: The First Day of Spring

The first full day of spring in 2009 is March 20. And we all know what comes after beautiful spring – the hot, lazy days of summer!

It is much obvious that in this society nowadays smart people have the most advantages of being successful and socially acccepted based on their careers, position, personal success, fame, power and all that upper middle class stuff. But at the same time while being 'smart', they are also facing all kinds of stress and struggles such as trying the best at showing the perfect them to the society, mantaining all the success, fame and power all the time while the list goes on and on. But happy people on the other hand, or in other words, are happy because they live in the moment. They don't care , or don't need to care what others think of them because they are not living under the eyes and sayings of other people. They enjoy being themselves in their way. Although nothing is perfect, but they tend to make the best out of the many things. And they don't get easiy tired of trying to become the best of the bests, as most smart people tend to do.So if i would choose, i would rather be happy than smart. Well, then the 'smart' people you've spoken about are not really all that smart after all,  are they? Cuz if they were really all that smart they would've realised that they shouldn't care about what others think about them. Am I right? Great point ! Thanks for the reminder ! So what do you think about being smart or happy ?
