March 1: Mardi Gras

  • Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday", reflecting the practice of the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritual Lenten sacrifices and fasting of the Lenten season.
  • The millions of colored beaded necklaces thrown from floats are the most visible symbols and souvenirs of Mardi Gras.
  • The colors of Mardi Gras are Purple (Justice), Gold (Power) and Green (Faith).
  • The original Mardi Gras began in the city of Mobile, Alabama in 1703.
  • Mardi Gras is more than just a day, it’s an entire season. Carnival Season begins on Twelfth Night (January 6) and ends on Fat Tuesday.
  • King Cakes were originally baked with a fava bean inside. The tradition was that whoever got the bean in their piece of cake was crowned, “King of the Day.”

    March 8: International Women's Day

    Celebrated on March 8 every year around the world. It is a focal point for women’s rights. The United Nations began celebrating the day in 1977. International Women’s Day grew out of efforts in the early 20th century to promote women’s rights, especially suffrage. In its campaign for female enfranchisement, the Socialist Party of America in 1909 held the first National Woman’s Day. Women earn 23% less than men globally. Women occupy only 24% of parliamentary seats worldwide. 1 in 3 have experienced physical or sexual violence.
    Purple, green and white are the colors of International Women’s Day. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope. White represents purity.

    March 9: National Barbie Day

    In 1959, an 11-inch tall bombshell made her debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York. Designed by Ruth Handler, the co-founder of Mattel Inc., Barbie was created to allow girls to imagine what their lives could be like in the future. Today, more than 100 dolls are sold every minute, with a total of 58 million sold annually!

    March 12: Working Mom’s Day

    This day of recognition aims to honor the 70% of women with children under 18 years of age who participate in today’s labor force. At great personal sacrifice, the working mothers of the world make substantial contributions not only to corporate success but also to the Nation’s economic growth and to the increasing strength of the American family.
    In 2018, Welch’s conducted a survey of 2,000 American mothers with kids between 5 and 12 years of age. The study revealed that a mother starts her day, on average, at 6:23 am and doesn’t conclude duties until 8:31 pm working a 14-hour day, seven days a week. The study offered that a working mom clocks in 98 hours, making it equivalent to working 2.5 full time jobs.
