March 3 – Princess Day

Posted on March 3, 2015

I couldn't find any information at all about why today would be Princess Day—not even the flimsiest of excuses such as “Blah-blah organization has deemed that, henceforth, March 3 to be Princess Day.” But on at least two holiday lists, there it is – “March 3 – Princess Day.”

And I thought, well, why not? Why not celebrate princesses?

There are plenty of interesting real-life princesses such as Princess Mary of Denmark, Princess Sirivannavari of Thailand, and Princess Sonam of Bhutan. There are, of course, plenty of Disney princesses, ranging from Snow White (whose film came out in 1938) to Elsa and Anna, princesses in the 2013 film Frozen.

Two of the most famous princesses in the world are from the United Kingdom. Princess Di, right, sadly died in 1997.

Princess Kate (Middleton), below, married Prince William.

This picture was created before Elsa and Anna took the world by storm. 
Here are a few of my favorite princess things:

The Princess Bride  – Surely you know this famous story of True Love, the Cliffs of Insanity, the Dread Pirate Roberts, the Pit of Despair, and Rodents of Unusual Size...right? If you do not know it, all I can say is:


And then I would say, run, don't walk, and somehow purchase this movie and watch it. Now!

The Princess Diaries  – I rather liked these books about an ordinary American girl named Mia Thermopolis who discovers that she is actually a princess. But there were a few times when I wanted to reach through the pages and give Mia a little shake...I can't quite remember why. Too whiny, maybe?

The Paper Bag Princess  – I always like a princess who can do the saving!

The Twelve Dancing Princesses  – There are many retellings of this and other Grimm fairy tales that talk about princesses, but this is one of my favorites.

Female lemurs are sometimes called princesses. Do you know what the names for these other animal-kingdom females is are:
  1. sheep
  2. alligator
  3. fox
  4. chicken
  5. ferret
  6. swan
  7. pig
  8. deer
  9. whale
  10. seahorse
