It’s March – Old beginning

Waiting for the delivery of warmer weather.

The word ‘March’ comes from the Roman ‘Martius’. Originally the first month of the Roman calendar and named after Mars, the god of war.

March was the beginning of our calendar year. The change to the ‘New Style’ or ‘Gregorian‘ calendar took from mid-1500s to 1923 for Greece as different countries adopted it at different times starting with papal decree, and it is only since then that the year began on the 1st of January.

The Anglo-Saxons called the month Hlyd monath which means Stormy month, or Hraed monath which means Rugged month.

Welcome to you March!
