We all know about St. Patrickís Day and Easter that also happens in March, depending on the year, but there are even more reasons to have fun in March. Although March almost half over there are still more fun holidays to celebrate and more reasons to throw a party. Pick a daily, a weekly or a monthly holiday and get ready to have some fun!
Mad for Plaid Month
Weíve all seen plaid Ė that wonderful fabric that is woven in different colored yarns in a cross-barred pattern. Itís made into shirts, blankets, skirts and a myriad of other things. But why not take it up a notch and make it an excuse to have fun.
Throw a plaid-themed party. Invite your guests to a celebration of plaid. Thereís only one catch, everyone has to buy their outfits from a local Salvation Army or other thrift store and the wackier the better.
Make it contest to see whose outfit is the wackiest. The movies Dead Men Donít Wear Plaid or Forever Plaid could be part of the celebration. You could also download some plaid-themed music for background. The ideas are endless. Itís time to go plaid!
Sherlock Holmes Weekend: 20-22
Although itís a weekend celebration, there are no rules that say it canít be stretched out to include the whole week! The gameís afoot! Don your period clothing, rent some Sherlock Holmes movies, invite some friends over and have a film festival evening. It would add even more excitement to the atmosphere if it was also be a potluck. But thereís a catch, everything has to be a dish that they wouldíve eaten in that time period.
For the even more adventuresome check the internet for the listings and locations for Sherlock Holmes weekend getaways. It will bring out the sleuth in you.
International Goof off day
March 22nd. Now, finally a day just dedicated to having fun! Itís time to put on a happy face and give yourself permission have kick back and relax or try something wild and crazy. Make it a day to remember. Itís even more fun when you include friends.
Take the day off of work, with permission, of course or take a break from school (sorry kids, adults only on this one). Do something youíve always wanted to do or havenít been able to do in a long time. For the even more daring at heart Ė do something random that is fun. Grab a friend, pick a bus or train and ride to a city youíve never been to before and go exploring.
No matter what you choose to celebrate or how you choose to celebrate it, let loose and have fun! Let the merriment begin! Stay fun, my friends.
