Welcome March

The word “March” comes from the Roman “Martius”. This was originally the first month of the Roman calendar and was named after Mars, the god of war. We changed to the “New Style” or “Gregorian” calendar in 1752 and it is only since then that the year begins on January 1st.

Among other things, March is famous for St Patrick’s day on the 17th
