STS Highlights: March 2024

This month I stumbled on a Farmer’s Almanac post about “March” which shared some fascinating fun facts, folklore, and holidays. I’m passing some of it along:

  • March is named for the Roman God of War, Mars.
  • We have International Women’s Day, the start of Daylight Savings Time, Ramadan, St. Patrick’s Day, the Spring equinox, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter this month.
  • March’s full moon, the Worm Moon, reaches peak illumination on the morning of March 25.
  • March is typically the time to start a vegetable garden.
  • Folklore: A wet spring, a dry harvest.
  • Folklore: Thunder in spring, Cold will bring.

You might be wondering what any of this has to do with training, and that answer is, “Nothing.” But it is important to take breaks and relax every once in a while, and sometimes tidbits of information like these can inspire.

With the coming of Spring, I’ve pulled together resources to help clean and start fresh. The goal with these monthly resources is always to convey a few public service announcements (PSAs) and to help elevate your career, department, or organization. As always, we take pride in helping you meet your training needs and goals.
