Perigee Moon
- On March 19th, a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset. It's a super Perigee Moon -- the biggest in almost 20 years. The last full Moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993, says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory in Washington DC. I'd say it's worth a look.
National Chocolate Caramel Day
- A day to celebrate everything great about chocolate and caramel. The union of chocolate and caramel is probably one of the greatest food combinations ever created. The caramel combined with rich chocolate results in a melt-in-your-mouth unforgettable experience!
Let Us Laugh Day
- People across the world celebrate today as Let us laugh day. So on this Let us laugh day, let us all vow to have a hearty laugh! Remember, laugh with others, not at others!
Perigean Tides
- A perigean spring tide is when the moon is closest to the Earth during the spring tide. Tides of maximum height and depression produced during this period are known as Spring tide. Even higher than a normal spring tide are the perigean tides. Perigean Spring tides can produce unusually intense flooding along the coastal regions. Low amplitude tides are known as neap tides. Neap tides are especially weak tides.
Saint Joseph's Day
- The Feast of St. Joseph or Solemnity of Saint Joseph is in Western Christianity the principal feast day of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a Solemnity in the Roman Catholic Church, and also a feast in the provinces of the Anglican Communion, and a feast or festival in the Lutheran Church. Saint Joseph's Day is the Patronal Feast day for Poland, persons named Joseph, Josephine, etc., for religious orders, schools and parishes bearing his name, and for carpenters.
Swallows Return To Capistrano day
- The famous cliff swallows of San Juan Capistrano, that leave town every year in a swirling mass near the Day of San Juan (October 23), are returning from their winter vacation spot 6,000 miles south in Goya, Corrientes, Argentina. They land at the mission in San Juan, California, on or around St. Joseph's Day, March 19th, to the ringing bells of the old church and a crowd of visitors from all over the world who are in town awaiting their arrival and celebrating with a huge fiesta as well as a parade.
Worm Moon
- So called by Native American tribes of New England and the Great Lakes because at this time of year there are signs of earthworms as the ground thaws in preparation for spring.
Operation Iraqi Freedom Day
- At 9:30 PM, EST on March 19, 2003, two hours past a deadline for Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to step down from power, US and British forces began air strikes against his regime. A ground campaign (adding Australian forces) followed quickly, and by April 9th, Baghdad was under the control of allied forces and Hussein had disappeared.
