Five Things to Look Forward to in March

Here are five things to look forward to in March . . .

1.  Daylight Saving Time starts back up on March 13th.  So the days get a little longer, and we’ll have more sunshine.  March 20th is the first day of spring.

2.  March Madness is two weeks away.  It starts March 15th and runs through the end of the month.  The championship game is set for April 4th.

3.  If awards season is your thing, you’re in it:  The Screen Actors Guild Awards just happened on Sunday.  But we’ve also got the Directors Guild, Writers Guild, BAFTA’s and Critics Choice Awards this month.  Then the Oscars are on March 27th.  (The Golden Globes were back in January, and didn’t air on TV this year.)

4.  If you’re hurting for new stuff to watch:  Season six of “Outlander” starts this Sunday . . . “The Masked Singer” returns March 9th . . . and season two of “Bridgerton” hits Netflix March 25th.  There are also a few big movies out this month, but the biggest is The Batman, which opens wide this Friday.

5.  And finally, the holidays.  It’s Mardi Gras today . . . tomorrow is Ash Wednesday . . . Purim starts March 16th . . . and we’ve got St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th.  Those are the big ones, but we’ve also got some lesser-known holidays coming up . . .

Next Monday is National Cereal Day . . . Ranch Dressing Day is next Thursday . . . Pi Day is March 14th . . . Crunchy Taco Day is the 21st . . . National Puppy Day is the 23rd . . . and March 25th is International Waffle Day.
