Prime Parents Club Weather March Lion LambWho can believe March is already here? (Where did the time go?) If you’re like many, you’ve probably heard the saying about March: “In like a lion, out like a lamb” (or the reverse). But, what does it really mean? Is there any truth behind it?

The “lion” and “lamb” references the good and bad of March weather. If March starts (“comes in”) calmly (“lamb”), then some believe it will end (“go out”) badly (“lion”), or with bad weather.

According to FarmersAlmanac.com, this may have started when many who believed in spirits and balance thought that it only made sense if March entered with chaotic weather that it would have to end with calm weather in order to create a perfect balance in the universe.

As you can imagine, this bit of weather lore doesn’t pan out. However, the sheer fact of unstable weather in Spring–the end of winter could represent “bad weather” at the beginning of March, and by the end of March we are further into Spring for “good weather”–often makes the “In like a lion, out like a lamb” saying seem true.

And, now you know.
