March is the third month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendar that consists of 31 days. It was the first month of the year in the 10-month Roman calendar. It is considered the seasonal equivalent of September in the opposite hemisphere.
March starts on the same day of the week as February and November and ends on the same day of the week as June in common years.
WHAT DOES MARCH MEAN TO US?
March is the first month of spring. Although the air temperatures have risen, the first two weeks of March are like Winter and the last 2 weeks as Spring. In fact, the official beginning of spring is March equinox. So, March is an unstable month in terms of climate. In this month, you can wear both boots and slippers, and t-shirts and coats, you can wear gloves, you can be an umbrella addict, you can even sunbathe and play with snow.
While the weather is uneven, this is often reflected in our mood. Hot and sunny months are about to come, but on the other hand, the year passes rapidly. We didn’t understand January and February was already short, but after 31 days in March, the New Year is no longer “new” to us. For this reason, it is natural to be a little worried and low motivated. But we should immediately revise our plans without being affected by this, and we must mobilize ourselves with similar energy at the beginning of the year.
WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF MARCH?
March was the first month of the year in older versions of the Roman calendar because of its association with the first day of spring. January and February were the months of winter and winter was accepted as a monthless period at those times.
The March equinox occurs during this month on the 21st day. After January became the first month of the calendar year around 700 BCE, January 1st is accepted as New Year’s Day instead of March. However, many cultures and religions still celebrate the beginning of the new year in March.
“March”, the English name of the third month of the year, comes from “Mars”, the name of the Roman god of war (the Latin name of the month was Martius, meaning “of Mars”). In other languages, March presents different meanings.
