Looking For The Lamb

It does look like, March will go out like a lamb for much of the northern hemisphere. Not a lot of information out there about how the phrase started and not a lot of it has to do with the weather. The earliest information I found was attributed to John Fletcher, 1624, he wrote a play called "A wife for a month", in which the line is found.

Then there is the constellations for March, beginning with Leo the Lion and ending with Aries, the ram or lamb. But, all in all, it is accepted that if March has strong, hard weather to start it is a lion and as it goes out signs of spring, warmer temperatures make it a lamb. Lets hope the rest of the day is a lamb.

No telling what surprises April will bring...
