March HoliDailys


When it comes to holidays, March has plenty of traditional and not-so-traditional occasions to celebrate.  While holidays typically honor special people, historical events, momentous occasions or worthwhile causes, Americans across the nation will kick off March by celebrating one of America's most beloved authors, an iconic doll, the Ides of March and leprechauns.  It's also time to move the clocks and get ready for a little yearly spring cleaning, too.

So get out the calendar, handy dandy personal organizer or calendar app, and pencil in the following special occasions. That way, you will never miss a holiday again because every day of the year really is a holiday!
