MARCH 39ers – Awaken to your inner child (who never ages past “39”!) and rediscover the fun and beauty of coloring your world.
How long has it been since you added accents in bright colors to your home décor or wardrobe? 2020 is a breakout year—notice nature around you and consider a bright new favorite color to symbolize a vibrant new you.
It’s MARCH – month of green for St. Paddy’s Day and a symbolic color for the First Day of Spring! (March 19th) Maybe choose shades of green to refresh your soul and enjoy *As Young As You Feel Day …
Along with Your UN-Birthday ~ Happy MARCH Celebrations
It’s National Noodle Month – Let’s eat! But wait, before you
Many believe color is a way to uplift and change your life, swirling hand-in-hand with healing your body, mind, spirit and soul. Just ask the folks at Aura House who introduced National Color Therapy Month.
So far as I know, though, there are just two colors of the yummiest treat on earth … brown and white … I would be UN-American if I didn’t include this celebration of yumminess, American Chocolate Week, from the 15th to the 21st. Chocolate.org even pairs our two favorite tastes in the world … chocolate and potato chips! It’s in their Spring Collection. Mmmmmm!
March 17th: Of course, we all know this is the favorite day of Irish Americans, but did you know we now have St.Patrick's Day TREES?! Yep … just like decorated Christmas firs, except all green and gold and … well, anything you like, and top it with an emerald green top hat, or a big glittering clover.
And think about it, your faux Christmas tree could become a permanent part of your indoor décor … decorating it for every Holiday! After St. Paddy’s Day, we have Easter … Memorial Day … 4th of July … and ooh, just think about the fun possibilities for Halloween! Spooky …
March 21st: International Colour Day – Although this is a viable special day and associated with the International Colour Association, there are no notably unique celebrations, except that which you might create! More than 30 countries represented in the ICA voted to establish this day in 2009, to celebrate all colors of the visual spectrum and black. Yes, you can wear all of the clothes in your closet at once!
March 22nd: *As Young As You Feel Day! You would think this day was created specifically for 39 and Holding Club. Since it was established, no identifying link appears to claim it. Finders – keepers! Actually, I’m contacting Brownielocks (my fave Holiday & commemorative calendar) to see if we can claim it with our page link because …
Back in 2015 I found a fun film with the same name. Call it 39AHC’s symbol of happy longevity. If you’re a black-and-white movie buff, or simply love good ol’ movies from way back, As Young As You Feel is a pure delight, with a budding young actress who became a true “idol.” Read all about it here … and click the link to watch the movie on YouTube.
March 31st: National Crayon Day – And to top off the month, who came up with fun ways to use color way back in 1903?? Crayola of course. So let’s enjoy the day with our inner child and color the world our way!
For 39ers who Follow the Stars …
Sensitive and compassionate Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) dances with the daring and fiery Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) as March UN-birthday 39ers herald the seasonal change from winter doldrums to bright spring.
If you know a Pisces, you’ve likely experienced the watery emotions of the fish, deep and sometimes murky. Take heart … March is cosmic and energetic for Pisces and moods lighten up as the month progresses, urged along by great social connections.
As for Aries, well … look out. We know Aries is strong and capable, but this month they’re a business dynamo to be reckoned with. Excelling on a professional level for most of the month, they march straight through the Ides of March feelin’ the love, too. (Is it you?)
Pisces finds its light green Zodiac color peaceful and healing, and though passionate red is attributed to Aries, no doubt Kelly green would make a terrifically appropriate accent!
Aging with ATT-i-tude Platitude
Your world is painted with the colors of your choices. Choose shades of your true self. Nothing else matters. ~ L. Rochelle

This one’s for you, kids – Steven and Susan!
