March is the third month in the Gregorian calendar and has 31 days. In the northern half of the world, March is the beginning of spring. In the southern half, it is the beginning of fall.
Holidays in March
The word holiday has differing connotations in different regions. It can exclusively be refer to the nationally, religiously or culturally observed day(s) of rest or celebration, or the events themselves. While the word may refer to the period of time where leave from one’s duties has been agreed.

In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities.
