Ever since I was old enough to understand the concept of spring, the beginning of March has had me longing for sunshine and more time spent outside.
I remember being taught “If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.” Now I wonder if my teachers really believed that or if they were just trying to find ways to keep us busy.
Weather proverbs aside, the official start of spring is March 20. Here are some songs to help get you through the last days of winter.
