March Holidays - Daily Calendar National, World Days
About March Holidays
March is a huge month. The pessimists among us should “beware of the Ides of March“. The rest of us will just enjoy a month of fun-filled holidays. In mid-month Saint Patrick’s Day arrives and everyone is a little bit Irish, if only for the day as we search for a lucky shamrock and a pot of gold. Shortly after, Spring officially arrives, bringing longer and warmer days. Spring flowers will soon pop up all over. There are March National Holidays and international days to celebrate and enjoy. Fill your March calendar with these fun and quirky days.
