Important Dates for your 2022 March Baby:

  • Your baby will graduate high school in 2040, and if they attend college, they’ll get their diploma in 2044.

  • Brace yourself, mama. That means your little one will start kindergarten in 2027!

  • The first election your baby votes in will be 2040.

  • And their 21st birthday will be celebrated in 2043!

  • Finally, to compare your 2022 babies to events that have happened in your lifetime, think about this. Your 2022 March baby was born:

    30 years after IBM’s first ThinkPad was released worldwide.
    The 700 and 700C models featured, among other things, floppy disk drives. When was the last time you used one of those?
     
    20 years after Avril Lavigne won Best New Artist
    at the MTV Video Music Awards, in part thanks to her wildly successful song “Complicated.”
      
    11 years after the Royal Wedding
    of Prince William and Kate Middleton. 23 million Americans watched at home, and afterwards, many wedding dresses took inspiration from Duchess Kate’s gown.

       

      Personality Traits of your March Baby:

      • March babies are born at the start of the spring season, which gives them a dynamic disposition and positive outlook. Spring is the season of fresh starts, and a March baby is generous and affectionate when giving others a second chance. They are independent and ready to see what the world has to offer.
      • What will your March baby be when they grow up? According to research published in the journal Economic Letters, the answer just might be “CEO.” The study tracked babies born in March and April and found they were more likely to climb the corporate ladder to the top when compared with their peers.
      • If your March baby finds an office too stuffy, they could have good luck setting their sights much higher. Pilots are more likely to celebrate a birthday in March, according to a small study done in the UK.
      • A March baby has great intuition and trusts their gut. They’re born earlier in the school year compared to their peers and may find it easier to advance socially and academically.
      • And finally, your March baby is exuberant and full of laughter. They will be a bright spot in your life, like the first flower to bloom in springtime: completely unique and sure to make you smile.

          • March 30th, 1867 – The United States bought Alaska for $7.2 million. The Alaska Purchase transferred the territory from Russia to the United States. Today the estimated cost would translate to about $133 million dollars. To put things in perspective, that’s still only $0.37 per acre. In 2021, buying an acre of land in a state like New Jersey could cost you around $196, 410. Even a cheaper state like Wyoming can still run about $1,558 per acre. Talk about inflation!

          • March 6th, 1899 – “Aspirin” is patented by Felix Hoffman. He was working at the German company Bayer when he received the patent for the drug, acetylsalicylic acid. This blood thinner and fever reducer can also help inflammation. Today, aspirin is widely used to treat a number of chronic ailments from pericarditis and arthritis to the common cold.

          • March 1st, 1936 – The Hoover Dam was completed, creating Lake Mead, which is the United States’ largest reservoir by volume when at its largest capacity. In addition to providing potable water, the dam is also a source of hydroelectric power. If you haven’t seen this massive structure in person yet – it’s 726 ft tall! – consider joining some of the millions of tourists who visit each year along the special Hoover Dam Bypass off Route 93.
