Reasons to Celebrate March

There are always reasons to celebrate life if you just look around you.

During March we have the obvious holidays we all know about, St. Patrick’s Day (17), Spring Equinox (20), Palm Sunday (20).

But did you know that March is also:

  • Irish American Month

The Month of Hope

This year three of the great holidays celebrating hope all fall within the month of March.  First on the 20th we have the Vernal Equinox, that gentle reminder from our mother, the earth, that life goes on, rebirth and second chances are all still possible.

Then on the 26th we celebrate the beginning of Passover.  If the story of the miraculous events that led to the Exodus with the children of Israel escaping slavery to find the Promised Land doesn’t give you hope I don’t know what would.

Finally on the 31st comes Resurrection Sunday (also known as Easter) that great celebration of light out of darkness, hope out of despair and life out of death.

Whether you celebrate any of these holidays or not, we all need hope.  Never forget, where there is life, there is hope.  This month the quotes will be focusing on hope.
