March 2021 Calendar
And, now that you know a little bit about who we are and what we do, we’ll go ahead and introduce you to our March 2021 Calendar, available for download below. Furthermore, on this calendar you’ll find 31 days and three landmark dates labelled: St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of spring, and Daylight’s Savings Time. While St. Patrick’s Day is always on the 17th of every March, the other two holidays vary. The first day of spring can range anytime between March 19 and 21, depending on when the sun crosses the equator. In contrast, Daylight Savings Time (DST) is set to be the second Sunday of every March. Consequently, on the March 2021 calendar you’ll find DST on Sunday, March 14 when we skip our clocks forward one hour and begin to enjoy more hours of sunlight each day.
With every month comes a full moon! This is an astrological phenomenon many look forward to as this large whole moon in the night sky can be quite breathtaking. Therefore, if you’re an avid night sky stargazer, here’s the moon phases for March 2021 so you can stay in the moon phase loop:
- Last Quarter Moon on Friday, March 5
- New Moon on Saturday, March 13
- First Quarter Moon on Sunday, March 21
- Full Moon on Sunday, March 28
The Month of March
Currently, in the United States and in all other countries that use the modern day twelve month calendar, March is the third month of the year. However, believe it or not, it was not always this way. Back in ancient Rome, March was the first month of a ten month year. This is because the winter months of January and February didn’t exist and the start of spring, or the first of March, was deemed the start of the year. This mostly had to do with war.
So, you’re probably asking, “What do war and spring have in common?” First of all, in ancient Rome, war was very popular, but it ceased in the winter months. Therefore, in spring, when the weather was warmer, war was allowed to resume. This also explains where the month of March got its name. After Mars, the Roman God of War, of course!
