Apparently March is a very busy month. EstyBloggers ask, “Which of the following means the most to you, why, and how do you celebrate/remember?”

* Irish American Month - I’m neither Irish nor American. I don’t even think either of these can be found ANYWHERE in my ancestry. However I do like potatoes, four leaf clovers, apple pie, and 2 out of 3 colours found in the American flag. I am eligible to become an American citizen however that would mean I’d also be eligible for jury duty. I think my most impressive asset to potential employers is that I will never have to take time off for jury duty.

* Music in Our Schools Month - Don’t they bring their Ipods to school every month??

* National Craft Month - Similar to the response I’d get when I’d ask, “When’s kid’s day?” EVERY month is craft month in my world.

* National Frozen Food Month -On behalf of Stouffers, I’d like to thank you for this honour that we initiated and paid big bucks for. If it warms up enough, I’ll celebrate by eating ice cream. A whole gallon. By myself. Because I care.

* National Irish American Heritage Month- designated by Congress in 1995. - Huh?

* National Nutrition Month - Ok, so I’ll eat something green. Like pistachio ice cream, which would kill two celebrations with one gallon.

* National Peanut Month - Where would the airlines be without peanuts? And while I don’t care for them myself, I do adore peanut butter. Not so much salmonella.

* National Women's History Month - I will celebrate by getting old. I am an undocumented part of women’s history.

* Poetry Month - "The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here."

* Red Cross Month - If they had thrift stores I would celebrate by shopping there. Other than that, I’m all for them but that’s it.

* Social Workers Month - Why do they get a month and secretaries, I mean administrative assistants, only get a day? Do you have to take them out for lunch every day of March?


  1. LoL--i hope you don't have to take social workers out every day, or else i'll go broke taking my big sis out (she's a social worker) ;)

  2. Wow...!! You ain't kiddin..! It is a busy month....ok, I guess I'll have to add these celebrations to my list...we all need more celebrations in our!

  3. LOL I would love to be taken out every day each month (I am a social worker) but unfortunately I don't think many people are aware that March is "Social Workers Month"...not even social workers!

  4. Oh my goodness - March is almost over and I haven't celebrated any of these yet! I'm going to have to cram a lot of celebrating into the next week! LOL

  5. Like Marjorie I haven't started celebrating any of these "national" holidays. I think I'll start with the pistachio ice cream and see how far I get.

  6. hahaha this made me laugh, especially about not becoming a US citizen to avoid jury duty. I became a citizen so that I could go back to Canada if the political situation here becomes unbearable (I'm feeling optimistic that isn't going to happen), and have been one for 8 months and no jury letter has arrived yet - guess it happens less in a town of 16,000. Happy March to you!

  7. Love it! You hit the high points, didn't you? (I think I'll eat a gallon of ice cream to celebrate frozen foods month myself!)

  8. Lol! Love the idea of eating a whole gallon of ice cream to celebrate Frozen Foods. In fact, I think I will honor all of the month long celebrations by eating a gallon in their honor :)

  9. lol!

    I really enjoyed the idea of celebrating the National Nutrition Month as you suggested... :)
    Oh, I must hurry up, today's the last day of the month!

  10. Who knew there were so many holidays in March. Too bad this is the last day of March. I would have had fun celebrating Frozen Foods Month with ice cream, or other frozen treats every night.
