The Month of March Madness

Why do we love the month of March?

We have so many events and several holidays. It may seem hard to keep up. Even the term "March Madness" immediately makes one think of basketball and rightly so, the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is known as March Madness.  However, there are numerous other reasons to love the month of March. A few of the big ones are The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the start of Spring, Mardi Gras and of course, St. Patrick's Day.

Want to read about starting a Spring garden, the origins of Mardi Gras, why rodeo's are so popular or who is St. Patrick exactly and why do we have a day in his honor?

Spring Cleaning 101

Ok, that last one didn't sound very appealing but there is really no point in avoiding it. I know spring cleaning is just not one of those fun things you wish to do but do not fret because your local library is here to help.
