“Mad as a Spring March Hare”
March is here, Spring is upon us! She marches in like a lion and slips out like a lamb.
“In like a lion, out like a lamb” has always seemed a straight forward enough proverb: when March starts, it’s still winter, and by the end of the month spring has begun.
The spring equinox in the Northern Hemisphere falls on Sunday, March 20 this year, marking the time when the sun passes over the celestial equator. Our clocks spring forward! Traditionally, we’ve celebrated the first day of spring on March 21, but astronomers and calendar manufacturers alike now say that the spring season starts one day earlier, March 20th, in all time zones in North America. We greet spring on Thursday, March 19, 2020!
Some cultures still observe the day as Ostara, a festival that celebrates the season’s change from dark winter to brightening spring. This day in March is the point of perfect balance on the Wheel of the Year. Night and day are of equal length and in perfect stability. This means that dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer are all in balance. Now the year is waxing and at this moment light again defeats the dark. The green natural world is coming alive, the sun is gaining in strength and the days are becoming longer and warmer. The final small kisses of Winter are becoming things of memories past. The change in weather is evident and you see fertility of the Earth begin at Ostara.
Happy first day of Spring!

Daylight saving time 2020 will begin at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 8
Mad as a MARCH Hare….
To be as “mad as a March hare” is a phrase that describes the observed behaviors, that happen only in the March breeding season of the European hare. The phrase is an allusion that can be used to refer to any other animal or human who behaves in the excitable and unpredictable manner of a “March hare”. We probably know a few Dominants that may behave that way. A long-held view is that the hare will behave strangely and excitedly throughout its breeding season, which in Europe peaks in the month of March. This odd behaviour includes boxing at other hares, jumping vertically for seemingly no reason and generally displaying abnormal behaviour.
The March Hare is a fictional character in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) by Lewis Carroll. He behaves in a most unpredictable manner as the host of an outdoor tea party that Alice stumbles upon. The Hare and Hatter are mad (insane) for specific reasons: hares and rabbits are said to go mad in the Spring because it’s their mating season, and hatters were said to go mad because of their exposure to mercury, a dangerous chemical used in the manufacture of the hats they sold.
What else is MAD, is it is the month where Steak and Blow Jobs are celebrated together in one special day! Steak and Blowjob Day (sometimes Steak & BJ Day or Steak and Knobber Day) is a satirical holiday that was created in the United States as a male response to Valentine’s Day and celebrated a month later, on March 14. On the day, women are purportedly supposed to cook a filet steak for and perform fellatio on a man in response to cards, chocolate and flowers given by men on Valentine’s Day. -Wiki
Saint Patrick ……
St Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated in countries with people of Irish descent. St. Patrick was actual British and not Irish. Drinking on this day first started to honor Saint Patrick on the anniversary of his death. The Christian people held a great feast for which Lenten food and alcohol restrictions were temporarily removed, which is why drinking has become synonymous with the holiday. Today, that tradition remains, as some Catholic people choose to cast aside Lent restrictions just for St. Patrick’s Day.
If you attend any St. Patrick’s Day celebration, you can expect to see the majority of revelers decked out in their finest green outfits. While some may think the green is simply a reference to Ireland’s famous rolling green hills, the color actually stems from another iconic St. Patrick’s Day symbol—the shamrock. According to legend, Saint Patrick used three-leaf clovers as a teaching tool to illustrate Christianity’s Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Celebrators would wear shamrocks on their clothing in honor of Saint Patrick, and eventually that tradition evolved into wearing green as well.
St. Patrick’s Day is an opportunity to spend time having some fun with the people in your life you care about most and make some memories that you won’t forget.
