10 Best Things About March

Written by Kayla Earley

  1. The spring equinox meant the first day of spring has arrived. It also means on the day of the spring equinox, you could make an egg sit upright. It’s all because of science. The earth is tilted just so in a way to make the world balanced.
  2. The weather during March can often be crazy, going from eighty degrees to freezing within the span of a week, but there are some days where you can go outside and play with chalk or ride a bike.
  3. Theatre Day is on March 27.
  4. Spring colors are appearing everywhere. Those pastel pinks, blues, and yellows are coming back in style. Flower print and bright tones are the perfect type of outfits to wear even through the rainy days.
  5. No matter where you go there is a pretty good chance you will see flowers blooming nearby. Nothing says March like growing flowers.
  6. The thing March is most famous for is St. Patrick’s Day. Better wear green or you might just get pinched. You could just put a little clover behind your ear.
  7. Little animals are being born. Cows, wolves, and horses often produce offspring during this time of year.
  8. The live version of Beauty and the Beast came out on March 17. The classic love story full of life lessons makes a grab for the hearts of all ages.
  9. On just about every child’s calendar the picture for March is a kite. The nice breeze that often passes through is perfect for kite flying.
  10. A classic dessert also gets celebrated this month all because of the number pi. Pi Day is on March 14.

Christmas Cookie Recipes

Everyone loves to eat Christmas cookies. They are a classic treat that are famous around the holidays. An easy recipe would be peppermint snowball cookies. They are traditional and easy to make. It calls for ¼ cup of finely crushed peppermint candies, ¼ cup of powdered sugar, 1 cup of softened butter, ⅓ cup of powdered sugar, another ¼ cup of crushed peppermint candies, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, ¼ teaspoon of salt and 2 ¼ cups of flour. The first step is to preheat the oven to 325°. Next, mix the ¼ cup of crushed peppermint, ⅓ cup of powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, flour and salt. In a separate bowl mix ¼ cup of peppermint and ¼ cup of powdered sugar. Save that and put it to the side. Shape the dough from the first bowl and set them onto an ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart. Then bake 12-15 minutes or until set but not brown. Immediately after taking them out of the oven, roll them in the peppermint and sugar mixture. Set them on a wire rack and let them cool. After they are cool, roll them in the mixture again. Finally, the cookies are ready to eat.
