March is the third month of the modern-day Gregorian calendar, coming after January and February. There are 30 days in the month of March.

During Roman times, March was the month or resuming armed conflicts after the winter months. Previously, the month of March was not the third, in fact, it was the first month in early versions of the Roman calendar. It was considered to be the month of new beginnings as it coincided with the time of the March equinox and the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. When in the 450 BCE January and February were named the first and second months of the calendar, March was pushed to the third position, The birthstones for March are aquamarine and bloodstone that symbolizes courage.
