I’m so excited that it’s March. Not only are there some fun and wacky holidays in March that we want to celebrate, but it also means the start of spring.
Each year in March the first day of spring aka the spring equinox happens. 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.

The date of the equinox changes each year so to find out when the official start of spring happens this year just do a quick google search for “spring equinox year (for example 2021)”.
Ok I know you didn’t come to read about the spring equinox but it is a fun holiday you might want to add to your calendar. Back to the fun and wacky holidays to celebrate this month.
In this post, I will share the holidays I think will be fun to celebrate with kids along with an idea or two for making it fun.
