MarchSomething On A Stick Day
- What comes on a stick? The first thing that comes to mind is Popsicles and Fudgesicles. Hotdogs are poplar on a stick at campfires. There's also corn-dogs, and shrimp and many Chinese treats. Cocktail wieners and cheese are picked and eaten on a toothpick. Celebrate this fun day by serving food for meals and snacks on a stick. The kids will love it!

National Black Forest Cake Day
- Black forest cake may have been around since the late sixteenth century. Black forest cake was created in the Black Forest region of southern Germany. The original cake was made with cooked cherries, some cream, kirsch and a biscuit in place of cake.

Eat an Eskimo Pie Day
- Eskimo Pie is an ice cream confection. It is a brand name for a chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream bar wrapped in foil, the first such dessert sold in the United States. The Eskimo Pie was invented by a high school teacher by the name of Christian Kent Nelson. Today is not the day Christian K. Nelson was granted his patent, that was on January 24, 1922. Today is the day the Danish immigrant was born in 1893.

Microfilm Birthday
- Bradley A. Fiske, of Washington, D.C., patented a device to read microfilm in 1922.

Respect Your Cat Day
- a special day of the year dedicated to those fabulous felines in our lives. After all, cats make wonderful pets and companions, don't they? If you have a cat in your family, give him or her some extra tender loving care today. If you don't have a cat or if you’ve been considering adding one to your family, Respect Your Cat Day is the perfect time to adopt an abandoned, neglected or homeless kitty from your local shelter.

Weed Appreciation Day
- Do you appreciate any weeds? Do you love or hate weed plants in your yard? Have you ever eaten a weed?
