  1. wow, what a lot of work compiling this list, amazing, white rabbit to you.

    1. I just copied it from Wikipedia, as I mentioned at the beginning. But I did enjoy looking through while eating my biscuits this morning. Rabbit rabbit back to you!

  2. What a great list! Thanks for taking the time and energy to sort and post this.

    I'm particularly drawn to World Happiness Day, March 20!

    1. Hi Suzi, I mainly wanted to have this handy where I could refer to it. I have a couple of days I want to celebrate this March...Equinox as always, but now I want to honor Pi Day too!

  3. I'd like to see some daffodils, if only this fukking snow would melt....

  4. That’s a great list, it could keep me busy for hours. Thanks.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
