March was originally the first month of the Roman calendar and named after Mars, the god of war. In 1752, we changed to the Gregorian calendar, and the first month of the year moved to January.
When it comes to weather, March tends to be a frustrating month. It’s so near to spring, and yet can swing violently between fair and foul weather.
