March is here! I love March. We celebrate the Irish, Women’s History Month, and Spring.

Let’s start March on Fat Tuesday, the day before Lent when you start the Parades with Mardi Gras, celebrate Paczki Day (one is called pączek), and finish the day by celebrating National Pancake Day with a big stack of pancakes and maple syrup.

Today we feast for tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent for Christians.

As we head towards the Christian celebration of Lent, today is Shrove Monday. Parades and carnivals begin before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.

We pause to remember all that are afflicted with rare diseases as we celebrate Rare Disease Day. Praying for cures for the rare diseases.

Buy a chocolate souffle to celebrate National Chocolate Souffle Day. I tried to bake one once, but it ended up being as flat as a pancake. 😉

Early Saturday mornings in Florida are the best time to go garage saling. Just as soon as the tables are out and the goods are being put out. It’s time to check for the best deals.

Be certain to celebrate Tell a Fairy Tale Day and get some of the combined Fairy Tale books. Once upon a time…..

And if you happen to sleep in, you can celebrate For Pete’s Sake Day. ‘Cause you’ll miss all the best deals. Don’t fret, wait until about noon and the “Free Boxes” will be at the curbs.

After a tough day of garage saling celebrate Open That Bottle Night with a nice red or white wine. 😉
