March is the third month of the year, has 31 days, and is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. March is the third month of the year in our modern day Gregorian calendar. It was originally the first month of the year in the Roman calendar and named Martius.
March is the month when spring officially begins, but you might not know it from the weather. As the seasons change from winter to spring, take some time to review the special days, holidays, awareness weeks, and observances for March.
