Sunday, March 8 is the start of Daylight Saving Time, which begins at 2:00am that night. Don’t forget to “spring forward” and set your clocks ahead one hour! It may be helpful to do this before bedtime on Saturday night, just so there’s no existential confusion the next morning!


More about March!

  • The month of March was named for the Roman god of war, Mars. Traditionally, this was the time of year to resume military campaigns that had been interrupted by winter.
  • Tuesday, March 17 is St. Patrick's Day. According to folklore, St. Patrick used the three-leaved clover (shamrock) in his teachings about the Holy Trinity.
  • Thursday, March 19 brings about the March equinox—also called the vernalor spring equinox—marking the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. On this day, the Sun stands directly over Earth’s equator. In the Southern Hemisphere, this date marks the autumnal equinox and the beginning of fall
  • Looking Ahead: This year, Easter Sunday will occur on April 12, culminating the Holy Week for Christian churches and commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Read more about Easter Sunday and find out why the date changes every year.

Remember, March is...

Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.”

In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.”
