What Else is Happening?

Holiday
🌷 Spring Equinox
For all our Northern Hemisphere readers, this Wednesday marks the first day of Spring, which means its that time of the year again to stand an egg on its end.  This Wednesday is also the start of Holi which is the Hindu Spring Festival, better known as the festival of love and color and for people throwing clouds of colored dye into the air. 


Space
🌕 Super Worm Moon
This year we've been spoiled, first we had the "Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse" and then the "Super Snow Moon".  Now, for the final Super Moon of 2019, we have the "Super Worm Moon".  As we enter Spring and the ground begins to warm, this moon represents the return of the earthworms as well as the return of the birds that eat them.


Money
🎬 Disney and 21st Century Fox Acquisition Finalizes
The merger of The Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox should be completed this week, which for a lack of a better term should be 'interesting' for media in general.  For the comic book fans, this means that the Fantastic 4 and X-men will be joining the Avengers in the MCU. 


Movies
 ✂ "Us" out in Theaters
Of the reviews we've read about Jordan Peele's follow-up film to "Get Out" which debuted at SXSW, is that this film is absolutely terrifying and lives up to the hype.  We'd tell you more about the movie, but we were too afraid to read the rest of the synopsis.


Holiday
💦 World Water Day
This is an UN observance day that we mention every year and thats because even in today's society billions of people are still living without access to safe clean water.  The theme this year is 'Leaving no one behind', which is the central promise of the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  If you like children's books, we suggest checking out “The Water Princess” by Susan Verde on this topic.
