March 15 - Beware the ides of March
March 17 - St. Patrick's Day
March was the third month of the year when we were born. It was originally the first month of the Roman calendar and before adopting the new style calendar - the addition of January and February -the ancient Romans got used to saying Happy New Year in March. In 1752 when the new style calendar was adopted, March became the third month of the year and that's how it has been since we saw the light of day.

There always is a festival going on in the Philippines - whatever month it is or the region you are in. To write about each of them may take an eternity. Even if we're writing only about March festivals, the list of such festivals is intimidating.

In 1946 following the end of WWII, Ateneo, “bloodied, but unbowed”, reopened its Padre Faura gates. With its buildings lying in ruins, the school erected renovated Quonset huts behind the rubble to serve as classrooms, a chapel and living quarters for the Jesuits.

The boys who would later be College 54 have the distinction of being among the first batch of students to move from their humble preserves in Padre Faura to the grandeur in Loyola Heights. For many, sadness mingled with anxiety as they bade farewell to Padre Faura and said hello to their new campus. Their student lives were to be spent mostly in Bellarmine Hall. Here was where they sat down for lectures, recitations, quizzes and tests and where they had anxious as well as triumphant moments. It was more than 50 years...Read More...
