NVWN March

Beware of the Ides of March, says the soothsayer to Julius Ceaser, predicting his assignation on March 15th, 44BC by Marcus (et tu) Brutus and the Roman Senate.

But for the rest of us, there is nothing to fear in March.
March Is National Women’s History Month. It also heralds in the official beginnings of Spring on March 20th: The Spring Vernal Equinox, when day and night are in equal proportions at the Equator, and indoor spring gardening begins. Daylight Savings Time also starts on the 12th. March 17th is St Patrick’s Day, when most of us become Irish and search for our lucky charms. So, go out and enjoy March!
