100 Ways to Make Your March Magical

(Or, How to Survive Late Winter on the Prairies)

Here at All Things Jill and in conjunction with our friends at our sister company, The Apothecary in Inglewood, we’ve come to a conclusion over the years:

March Sucks.

We will allow that it doesn’t always suck (two years ago, it was beautiful — for instance). And we will allow that even the worst March has bright spots, like the days getting longer (literal bright spot!) and … ummm… sometimes Easter? 

We really don’t love March.

So, a few years ago, we came up with an idea to help us get through those last few weeks of winter unscathed. Those weeks when it really, really seems like spring should be here but often, it’s just not. Those weeks when even though the days are longer, it’s still darker than you’d like; and the ground isn’t thawed to plant the garden yet; and there are often still a few blizzards. Did we mention we live in Calgary? If you live on the Canadian prairies, or almost anywhere in Canada besides the West Coast, for that matter; or in the American midwest, well… you get what we’re talking about.

The idea was to not let ourselves sink into the despair that threatened to overtake us via wet socks, grey slush and slippery yet salty roads, and to instead give ourselves things to look forward to. Things to laugh about. Ways to feel joy.

We called it: Magical March.
