MarchGrass Is Always Browner On The Other Side Of The Fence Day
- created to honor the people who never left their old life just because they thought the "grass was greener on the other side." It was also created to inspire people to be happy with what they have, rather than selfish and greedy and envious of other people.

I Am In Control Day
- On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt. Lots of confusion prevailed. In the White House, then Secretary of State Alexander Haig was taken a little out of context when he said "I am in control here". Instead of focusing upon the entire statement, people and the press focused upon these few words. Political uproar eventually led to his resignation. On that infamous day, I am in Control Day was born.

National Doctors Day
- created to show appreciation to your doctors. Doctors perform vital diagnosis, treatment and care for yourself and your family. When you are well, your doctor keeps you well. When you are sick, there is no other person more important to you than your doctor.

Turkey Neck Soup Day
- Turkey Neck Soup is pretty much what it says – a soup whose stock is made from turkey necks. It is of course a soup American in origin, what with the Turkey being also American in origin. It’s also an example of what is now known as “Nose to Tail” eating, making use as it does of a part of the bird that one might not usually consider eating, but that really shouldn’t be wasted.

Take a Walk in the Park Day
- If you spend the majority of your time among stores, restaurants and skyscrapers, it may be time to trade in your high heels for some hiking boots. A new study in Psychological Science reveals that spending time in nature may be more beneficial for mental processes than being in urban environments.

Pencil with Eraser Patented
- Hymen L. Lipman is credited with registering the first patent for a pencil with an attached eraser on March 30, 1858.

Welcome Alaska!
- In 1866 the Russian government offered to sell the territory of Alaska to the United States. Secretary of State William H. Seward, enthusiastic about the prospects of American Expansion, negotiated the deal for the Americans. Edouard de Stoeckl, Russian minister to the United States, negotiated for the Russians. On March 30, 1867, the two parties agreed that the United States would pay Russia $7.2 million for the territory of Alaska.

Egg Incubator Patented
- Napoleon E. Guerin received the first U.S. patent for an egg incubator in 1843. He also was the first to patent a life preserver.

Double-Deck Bridge Day
- The final link in the superstructure of the Queensboro Bridge was completed in 1908. On March 30, 1909, the bridge opened to the public at a cost of $20 million and 50 lives. The opening ceremonies, which were sponsored by the "Committee of Forty," featured a two-hour fireworks spectacular that attracted the attention of even the most jaded Manhattanites.

Charlie Brown's Home Run Day
- Charlie Brown did have occasional victories, such as hitting a game-winning home run off a pitch by Roy Hobbs' great-granddaughter on March 30, 1993 (though she later admitted she let him hit the home runs)
