The March Madness of Spring

If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. Is there any truth to this saying? Weather folklore sayings are as colorful as our imagination. But if you agree with the Farmer’s Almanac or not, most people start stirring just like the hibernating animals for the warmth of the spring sun.

Some people can not wait for the sun to get warm to fulfill their needs. They instead engage in the time-old tradition of Spring Break or vacation to get away.

Did You Know?

Spring break started in the mid- 1930s when a swimming coach from Colgate University in frigid Upstate New York decided to take his team down to Florida for early training at a brand-new Olympic pool in sunny Fort Lauderdale. The idea clicked with other college swim coaches, and soon the spring training migration became an annual tradition for swimmers nationwide.


Maybe the stirring for you isn’t about the sun at all; perhaps it is the March Madness of college basketball. Filling in the brackets, watching the upcoming talent emerge, and hoping the Cinderella team you picked make you proud.


Did You Know?

The first NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament was played in 1939. It had eight teams. Oregon is the first NCAA tournament champion, beating Ohio State for the title.


Or – Are you a Wee Bit Irish or Not? Wearing green and celebrating the Irish tradition has been officially a Christian feast day since the early 17th century. It is a holiday across much of the world for many religions.


Did You Know?

Records show that a St. Patrick’s Day parade was held on March 17, 1601 in a Spanish colony in what is now St. Augustine, Florida.


Breaking out of the winter funk to the spring happens if we engage in the Madness of March, St. Patrick’s Day or a personal holiday.
