World Turtle Day

Watch David Attenborough’s baby turtles racing to the sea (this video makes the Toddler laugh so much), then make these egg box turtles. Maybe, if you have a sandpit, you could make paper eggs for them and bury them.

Tibet Liberation Day: it was a British protectorate from 1904; China took it back 1950. See 10 March for full history.

Other events today:

  • Birthday of Guru Amar Das (Sikhs)
  • Jamaica Labour Day – see 6th August
  • South Carolina founded 1788: famous for peaches
