Let’s just say there’s no shortage of reasons to celebrate in March! In addition to the days getting longer and the temperature getting higher, there are a bunch of wonderful holidays as well.
This month brings hopes of higher temperatures and melting snow, and the celebration of Spring. On Sunday, March 10th we turn our clocks back to Daylight Savings Time, and then later in the month on March 20th, we have the official first day of Spring! Charles Dickens said it best: “It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” Never sure what to wear when you go outside? It’s all about layers people!
March is chock o’ block with reasons to have fun. Let’s start with the recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8th. Shortly afterward, St Patrick’s Day falls on March 17th… we highly recommend having a green pint or two, and dancing a jig with your friends at the neighbourhood Irish pub! The eve of Passover arrives on March 25th – those of Jewish faith gather with friends and family to share symbolic meals in their community. And finally, Easter comes early this year – Good Friday falls on March 29th, and Easter Monday follows on April 1st. You can commemorate this Christian holiday by attending a religious service, painting Easter eggs and eating the chocolate treats that the Easter Bunny drops off!
And now for something a little bit different… bet you didn’t know March 13th is “Earmuff Day”! The inventor of the earmuffs, Chester Greenwood, was only 15 when he came up with this cozy-ear idea on a cold day in Farmington, Maine back in 1873!
Our chefs are serving up “Hello Hummus” this month, a healthy crepe stuffed with garden fresh veggies, tasty hummus and topped with chick peas. Remember, you can create amazing crepe combos at home, and remember to post your photos on our facebook page!
