The weather is always a popular topic of conversation, but never more so than in the month of March. In fact, there’s a famous proverb on the subject: “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” That old chestnut is a commentary on the Jekyll-and-Hyde weather of a month in which Winter officially turns to Spring.
But the change of seasons isn’t the only thing to talk about in March. The month also features one of the most fun-filled holidays of the year (at least if you’re of drinking age): St. Patrick’s Day. And let’s not forget about International Women’s Day, which falls each year on March 8.
In other words, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the coming of March. To help you mark the start of this pivotal month, here’s a list of ways you can say “Happy March” to all your friends.
Here are some straightforward messages to wish people a Happy March. For more ideas like these, see this list of springtime greetings.
