March may be known for the start of spring and St.Patrick’s Day, but honestly, the month has so many other special days to offer. So while you’re decorating everything in green and getting the kids excited about outdoor activities, be sure to check out some other March holidays and observances this year.

We’ve taken the time to compile all the national, federal and quirky unofficial holidays that fall during the third month of the year. As you take a scroll through this list, you’ll find out what day Purim falls on this year, when you should prepare to acknowledge International Women’s Day, as well as monthly observances such as Women’s History Month (because inspiring and trailblazing women deserve to be acknowledged) and National Color Therapy Month.

This year, don’t let March babies have all the fun. Dive into this directory of a host of festivities that you can enjoy all month long.
