It’s so tempting to stagger through the months of a new year … January – New Year’s Day; February – Valentine’s Day; March – St. Patrick’s Day …
Ah yes, March 39ers – we made it to the month when wearing green is cool and Guinness makes more $$ than any other month of the year.
Pensive Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) and airy Aries 39ers (21st thru April 19th) are proud to march through the month to their own drumbeat. But smart couples fresh off the Valentine cruise, will march down the aisle in March and save a small pot o’ gold.
Considered an “off” month for weddings, it was still no surprise when the young couple in our family announced their engagement at Christmas, and impending nuptials in March. Why?
After all, with their most common clan name of Murphy, what better month to share family hugs and lots of Irish kisses? No doubt, the reception will see a Guinness or two toasts, with twisted tongues.
But there is much to celebrate before and after the popular Celtic holiday … feel free to explore …
9th – Get Over It Day: When your mate | friend | family member snubs you over a real or imagined minor, crybaby issue, don’t you just want to yell, “Get over it!”? Next time you see them you can wear your 39 and Holding “Laugh & Get Over It!” t-shirt or send them a sweet, cuddly teddy bear …
12th – Genealogy Day: Even if you’re not Irish and care less about family history, are you at all curious about your name? A good place to start …
17th – Drink a few green beers and smooch all the redheads.
21st – Memory Day: While this day offers a reminder to Ohio citizens of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease, we can twin it with a day of summoning our memories of yore from the nooks and crannies of our minds, and sharing them (while they’re still within reach) with our family and friends, to create a new, warm and fuzzy memory.
22nd – As Young as You Feel Day: And finally we come to a “holiday” near and dear to 39ers. As Young as You Feel Day should be heartily celebrated! We’ve adopted it – and the delightful vintage movie with the same name, as our official day and entertainment activity, to enjoy the age we feel in our hearts …
So March 39ers, let us join you for your month of birthday fun! Whether you’re watching a fave couple march down the March wedding aisle, viewing vivacious vintage movies, or simply raising a pint to the special folks helping you celebrate … never forget … you’re As Young as You Feel and always 39 and Holding!
(Here’s lookin’ at you, kids – 39AHC Birthday 39ers, Steven and Jim!)
