Check these printable March calendars for 2024!
While March is the third month of the year since 18th century, being the month when spring started, it was for many centuries the first in the calendar. March is called the month of life, hope, new beginnings and resurrections.
The main reason for this is of course weather. On 20th or 21th of March Sun crosses celestial equator from South to North. This means Northern Hemisphere will get a bigger share of sunlight coming to Earth what is undoubtedly a good reason for optimism.

There is an interesting superstition related to cuckoos: when you hear it for the first time in a given year, turn all your money in your pockets, spit and don't look down. If you are standing on soft grounds, this will bring you luck, if you are on hard ground, this is bad for you. And if your pockets are empty it's not a good sign either.
Easter is the most important holiday in Christianity (even bigger than Christmas) It is a day when the resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated and it has clear pagan origins. It is not hard to see how happy were the ancients when Sun, symbolically dead through the winter, finally came back in full power - it was certainly something to celebrate!
So ... Why eggs on Easter? And why is there an Easter bunny? Eggs and rabbits are both powerful symbols of fertility. Spring is all about fertility, birth, new life.
