It’s the Beginning of March, So Celebrate It!

March has started and Spring will be here in no time.  Until then, celebrate all these fun national holidays in the beginning of March.

The first day of the month is filled with things to celebrate! It’s National Dadgum That’s Good Day, National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, National Fruit Compote Day, National Horse Protection Day, National Pig Day, and National Minnesota Day. If it’s the weekend, the date moves to the closest school day but otherwise it’s National Read Across America Day. And there are also three holidays on the first Friday in March, National Employee Appreciation Day, National Dress in Blue Day, and National Speech and Debate Education Day. What a fantastic first day of the month!

March 2nd is National Old Stuff Day and National Banana Cream Pie Day. So go through your old stuff, stuff your face with banana cream pie, and take a nap! You’ll need it after all of the holidays you celebrated the day before.
