March Really is a Month to Celebrate!

There are so many month long celebrations to enjoy in March, let's take the time to review a few of them.
Celebrating lots of National March Holidays

Women's History Month


March is Women's History Month.   There are lots of ways to celebrate this, but we can point you towards two ideas right here!   Try reading the book When Women Ruled the World based in Ancient Egypt, which Bev reviews right here.   Alternatively if you prefer watching a movie Bev has also reviewed Hidden Figures.

If you're celebrating Women's History Month (or should we call it Women's Herstory Month?) then please let us know how in the comments below.

Irish American Heritage Month


It stands to reason that March is Irish American Heritage Month as it does encompass St Patrick's Day.   Although the Feast of St Patrick has been celebrated for centuries, the St Patrick's Day parades and global celebrations as we know them have been majorly influenced by Irish Americans.

From eating traditional Irish food, or enjoying a tipple or two there are lots of ways of celebrating Irish American Heritage month - let us know if you're celebrating any Irish roots in the comments below.

National Nutrition Month


March is National Nutrition Month, which I wrote about last year - here's a few ideas  on how to celebrate National Nutrition Month.

We have lots of articles on this site for improving your nutrition.

National Craft Month


March is also National Craft Month which is something a number of the contributors on this site celebrate.  Cynthia has written about National Craft Month and links to stores that belong to other 'crafty' contributors.   You will find a number of articles on this site about various crafts.

If you enjoy crafts, please comment below and let us know your favorite craft.

Health Observations in March


March is also the month for a lot of different health related things such as:


  • Endometriosis Awareness Month
  • Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month
  • National Brain Injury Awareness Month
  • National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month
  • National Kidney Month
  • Trisomy Awareness Month
  • Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month
  • National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month


Other March Observations

There are a few other month long celebrations in March including (but not limited to) the following:


  • Optimism Month
  • National Foreign Language Month
  • National Ethics Month
  • National Celery Month
  • National Frozen Food Month
  • National Peanut Month
  • National Umbrella Month
  • National Music in our Schools Month


I'm surprised that March isn't the National Month of Tea Parties as when I hear the expression mad as a March Hare it makes me think of the Mad Hatter's tea party from Alice in Wonderland!  I hope you've enjoyed looking at what special observations are celebrated this month.

  1. Wow Louanne, there is a celebration available to anyone who needs a reason to celebrate. You have made a fine list and I'm sure there are many who will look for something to celebrate if they haven't already found a cause. That is one extensive and all encompassing list. Thanks!

  2. There are certainly lots of reasons to celebrate in March. I've been celebrating crafts for years ~ in March and everyday. :) I like March for a couple more reasons: the month contains my wedding anniversary, a grandson's birthday, and it is Spring Training time, leading up to the return of the Major League Baseball season; my favorite time of year. As you say -- LOTS to celebrate in March.

  4. This is a pretty awesome list. I had not realized so many celebrations, special interests, and causes claimed the month of March. Not really surprising though since it is that month that ends winter, but is right before everyone gets so busy with spring breaks & summer activities. Thank you for including my article on National Craft Month. I like the idea of declaring it the National Month of Tea Parties. I'd attend and try hard to appear to be wild as a March Hare while wearing a Madhatter hat. By George, I think we could get this thing started!
