March Holidays

Mar 01, 2017

There are several holidays to look forward to in March. You can boogie down for Holi and promote girl power on International Women's Day. Here's a list, and a brief description, of the holidays you can celebrate this month.

St. David's Day - March 1st

St. David, or Dewi Sant, is the official saint of Wales. He was said to have performed miracles and he established several monasteries throughout England and Wales. Two things closely associated with St. David's Day are the daffodil and the leek. Wales is definitely the place to be on March 1st.

Holi - March 13th

This holiday is celebrated throughout India, but Northern India gets the craziest on this day. You can't walk anywhere without having someone drop colored flour from rooftops, having balloons filled with paint burst around, or even on you, and being squirted with colored water. Holi is both a celebration of the triumph of good over evil, as well as the arrival of spring.

St. Patrick's Day - March 17th

This Irish holiday is always celebrated on March 17th, which is the day St. Patrick died. Patrick was a missionary way back in the 4th century who converted the Irish to Christianity. He used the shamrock as a way of explaining the three important parts of Christianity - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit - which is why the shamrock is now a symbol for this day.

Saint Joseph's Day - March 19th

People of Italian heritage usually celebrate this Christian holiday. It recognizes Joseph, the patron saint of Italy who was married to Jesus' mother, Mary. The holiday started in the Middle Ages when there was a long drought in Italy. The people prayed to St. Joseph for rain, and when it started raining they celebrated with a feast in his honor. There are also people who believe that swallows (a kind of bird) return to San Juan Capistrano, California from their winter migration on this day.

Spring Equinox - March 20th

Spring Equinox, also called the Vernal Equinox, is the first day of spring. On this day, there are exactly 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness everywhere in the world.

I'm sad to see you leaving so soon, especially because we have only been friends for a little while.  I didn't know your birthday was coming up so quickly, or that you were going to be 18! I have lots of things to say about you (all good things), but it'll be hard to name them all. I just want you to know that it's not about how long you've been here, it's about the memories that last a lifetime. I hope you have a happy birthday and a great trip!

" In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule… long have I served as the guardian spirit… I am known as the Deku Tree. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, live here with me. Each Kokiri has his or her own guardian fairy. However, there is one boy who does not have a fairy…. " *** In his tree-trunk home, the boy was tossing and turning on his little cot. The circular room was dark; it was nighttime. And, as it was nighttime again, his young mind was plunged into the same nightmare again.... Hooves, galloping in a rapid staccato, like a myriad of drums being pounded, raced across a dark path lit on either side by fire as tall as the boy. But they only reached the shoulders of the horse as dark as midnight, its master clothed in cloth and armor just as dark. But that wasn't what was scary... it was the aura of evil practically dripping off the man, with his fiery hair and dark, nearly-green skin.... And how real he felt. *** "...Navi... Navi, where art thou? Come hither...." Back in my clearing, a cyan ball of light entered my line of sight, gently bobbing a few feet off of the ground. A pair of barely visible clear wings were the only indicator that she was facing me. Compared to my massive size, she was almost a speck. " Oh, Navi the fairy... listen to my words, the words of the Deku Tree.... Dost thou sense it? The climate of evil descending upon this realm.... Malevolent forces even now are mustering to attack our land of Hyrule.... For so long, the Kokiri Forest, the source of life, has stood a barrier, deterring outsiders and maintaining the order of the world.... But, before this tremendous evil power, my power is as nothing.... It seems the time has come for the boy without a fairy to begin his journey... the youth whose destiny it is to lead Hyrule to the path of justice and truth.... Navi, go now! Find our young friend and guide him to me... I do not Have much time left. Fly, Navi, fly! The fate of the forest--nay, the world--depends upon thee. "
