Hello March … is here!

March is an in between month,

When wintry winds are high.

But milder days remind us all,

Spring’s coming by and by.

The month of March is here. Although it is still Winter,  the days are much better than they were in January and February.  The sun stays longer in the sky and soon it will be Spring. Oh! Isn’t that good news?  Spring is such a lovely time of the year. Flowers and trees start to bloom again and the countryside gets all decked up in all shades of green and many other colours. The month of March is named after the Roman god Mars, the god of war. Mars was the son of Jupiter and Juno, the king and queen of all the gods. Mars was tall and handsome, and mean and self-centered. It is the third month of the year and it has 31 days.  Many important festivities are held during this month. There is the feast of Saint Patrick on the 17th, the feast of Saint Joseph on the 19th and the feast of the Annunciation on the 25th. At school we shall have, amongst other events, the mini bicycle marathon, Parents’ Day and the Book Fair. Then it will be time for Easter – the greatest feast of all.
