A month green with possibilitiesIn terms of health, humanity and optimism, March has got you covered.

In terms of health, humanity and optimism, March has got you covered.
The third month of the year wants you to be well-informed on a plethora of different medical issues. In fact, it holds the title of all of the following: Colorectal Cancer Awareness, Malignant Hypertension Awareness & Training, National Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Awareness, National Multiple Sclerosis Education & Awareness and Poison Prevention Awareness month.
On a lighter note, March is also considered Adopt A Rescued Guinea Pig Month, so take a break from learning about different diseases and go pick up a new pet to care for. If small rodents aren’t your cup of tea, consider saving man’s best friend in honor of National Puppy Day on March 23.
And while you’re helping others — humans and animals, alike — help yourself by maintaining a positive outlook because March is International Mirth Month and International Expect Success Month.
Still having trouble with positivity? Don’t wait until St. Patrick’s Day to lift your spirits. Instead, use March 10 as a chance to focus on your best qualities and determine what makes you awesome during International Day of Awesomeness.
But wait — there’s more. Not only is the 10th loaded with awesomeness, it also holds the title of International Fanny Pack Day. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
While last month drew a lot of attention to candy in conjunction with Valentine’s Day, March is not far behind on the sweets scale.
Pi Day is celebrated March 14. Yes, it’s technically referring to the mathematical version of pi, but there’s no rule that says you can’t celebrate the delicious and edible version as well. Apple, cherry, peach — the options are endless so choose a different one for each meal and have at it.
Not such a fan of fruit? Satisfy your sweet tooth with chocolate on March 19 for National Chocolate Caramel Day or March 24 for National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day.
If you’re still craving more and have been anxiously awaiting a day dedicated to marshmallow cream or gummy bears, you can stop waiting — they don’t exist.
Still, if none of March’s observances tickle your fancy, don’t despair. March 26 offers a holiday that is virtually unmatched by any other throughout the rest of the year: Make Up Your Own Holiday Day.
If you’re thinking about using that occasion to make up a holiday for pencils or Bunsen burners, however, don’t waste your time. Both of those items already get 24 hours of recognition on March 30 and 31 — not surprisingly, of course. Who wouldn’t dedicate time to honoring Bunsen burners?
Instead, use March 26 wisely and take the opportunity to celebrate inanimate objects that clearly wouldn’t have their own holiday already. Perhaps angora sweaters or staplers would appreciate some attention.
Nobody will make fun of you. They’ll be using the same day to honor something equally as strange like pancake syrup or ballpoint pens
