The name March comes from Martius, the first month of the earliest Roman calendar. It was named after Mars, the Roman God of War, who was also regarded as the guardian of agriculture and an ancestor of the Roman people through his sons Romulus and Remus. It’s kind of a strange month. We start thinking about lawns and gardens in the month of March. Sometimes, Easter arrives early and is hosted in this month, which makes for a cold spring break. St. Patrick’s Day is always celebrated on March 17.
The weather in March is random. A couple of years ago it rained, was overcast or drizzly the entire month of March. I was never so happy to see the sun after 30 days of grey. In our area, we might get snow, sleet or freezing rain as well. Or, it may be a warmer month. March is an interesting month for many reasons, but for Prince William Living, it’s the month that we profile our picks, for influential women.
