March 17

St. Patrick's Day

The Irish who immigrated to the United States brought the traditions of St. Patrick's Day with them. Today there are about 33.7 million residents who claim Irish ancestry. And, there are four places in the United States called Shamrock, and nine places called Dublin. Try to find them on a map! The very first St. Patrick's Day parade in the United States was held in New York City in 1766.

Vernal Equinox

Spring arrives on March 20, 2017, at exactly 6:29 A.M. EDT. The word equinox comes from a Latin word meaning "equal night." The vernal, or spring, equinox refers to the point at which the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from south to north, signaling warmer days and more daylight!
