Fun Holidays in March (Free Printable List)

Inside: A list of fun holidays in March with some fun ideas for celebrating.

I’m so excited that it’s March. Not only are there some fun holidays in March that we want to celebrate, but it also means the start of spring.

Each day in March has a fun holiday (national day) that you can celebrate. March is also the official start of spring with the spring equinox.

Spring Equinox

The Spring equinox is when the sun crosses the equator line, heading north in the sky. After the spring equinox, days start getting longer and warmer leading to summer.
