Exciting Covid-Safe Activities For March!
As spring fast approaches, people are looking for some Covid-friendly ways to get out more and celebrate the start of a warmer season. We’ve got a lot to be thankful for with the vaccine finally rolling out, but we still need to be careful and continue many social distancing precautions. March will give you plenty of things to get excited about, however!
You Can Finally Start Planning Your Spring Garden
While it’s still cold in some areas of the country, you can plant veggies like carrots and potatoes, trees, shrubs, and annuals in most areas. It’s also a great time to start planning out your garden for when the warmer weather finally kicks in. If you want to decorate your garden and give it a little bling, we’ve got some great suggestions for you here.
Some pretty spring flowers include:
● Sweet Alyssum
These will add a lot of color to an early spring garden. You can also get some of our suncatchers to decorate with.
Outdoor Early Spring Activities With Social Distancing
It looks like COVID is still going to take its toll on our spring break plans in 2021. Air travel, although some choose to risk it, is still very dangerous. Spring break activities that still allow for safe social distancing include RV road trips, camping, staycations, and renting an Airbnb. If you don’t have your own RV, you can rent one or use an RVshare service. RVs have become super popular since the start of the pandemic for families that still wish to travel and get out of the house. You can also go old-school and pitch a tent under the stars. Some campsites have cabins you can book if you aren’t really the roughing-it type of person. Glamping, or camping with lots of luxuries, is certainly a possibility. As long as you can stay 6 feet away from those not in your immediate family, it’s still safe to hangout outdoors. Plan a trip to a local park, or take a nature hike to get some fresh air. While we’ve been mostly cooped up indoors for over a year now, it’s important to stay active for your physical and mental health. Try bike riding, swimming, hiking, or just taking a neighborhood stroll daily. You’ll get sunlight, fresh air, and lots of vitamin D.
Celebrate Women’s Day March 8th
“I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life.” - Maya Angelou.
While all of March is Women’s History Month, International Women’s Day is officially celebrated on March 8th. This is a day where we celebrate achievements by women, raise awareness about bias and gender inequality, and take action for a better tomorrow. This year’s theme is #ChooseToChallenge, where people are tasks with calling out inequities they see and demanding our leaders do better.
“Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” - G.D. Anderson.
Wear Something Green For St. Patrick’s Day
While officially St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) observes the death of the patron saint of Ireland, the American version of the holiday has evolved into a celebration of the Irish culture in general. We typically will wear lots of green, hold parties or parades, and eat Irish foods.
The pandemic changes the public celebrations a bit, but you can still participate at home with green clothes and food. St. Patrick’s day is actually celebrated all over the world. Some places have religious services to honor this saint. Many households will cook Irish foods like boiled cabbage and corned beef, which was a common dinner of Irish immigrants to the US. More traditional menus would feature lamb and bacon.
So why do we wear green on St. Patrick’s day? Folklore says that green makes you invisible to leprechauns who like to pinch you and play tricks. The green shamrock is also a popular symbol of the holiday. If you need something green, how about this adorable green enamel mushroom bangle bracelet? You don’t have to be green from head to toe; a little bit will do!

Honor A Pisces or Aries You Love
There are two astrological signs for March, depending on what day you were born. Astrology is a fun practice tied to personalities and horoscopes.
Pisces are born between February 19th and March 20th. Pisces is a water sign designed with two fish swimming away from each other. This symbolizes Pisces’ divided attention between fantasy and reality. Pisces are said to be more intuitive than others, and many are artistic.
Aries are born March 21 - April 19th and they are known to be attention hogs. These ambitious folks dive headfirst into every challenging situation and love to take risks. Aries are passionate and confident leaders who are easily frustrated.
You can celebrate your ties to either one with our customizable zodiac bangle; choose your sign. It’s a stackable silver-plated bangle; one size fits most, so it’s easy to give as a gift.
