It is always a pleasure to look forward at the upcoming month and see what holidays we can participate in. At the same time it is beautiful to see that March has quite a few cultural holidays taking place.

To name a few, March offers, World Wildlife Day educating people on the importance of a healthy ecosystem, International Women’s Day, looking back at the history of Women and how they helped build on a better life. Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the Japanese National Flower, Harmony Week celebrates Australia’s diversified community. St. Patrick Day is a cultural and religious celebration signifying Christianity in Ireland.

There are celebrations in India that express the importance of Kindness, and love to each other called Holi festival. The French have a day of celebration for language and diversity called Francophonie. World Theatre Day is celebrated through attending theatres and watching the performing arts.
