Apparently, hares have long been thought to behave excitedly in March, which is their mating season. But, in addition to being an old English saying, in use since the 16th Century, this phrase has been referenced in various well-known books and poems. Lewis Carroll uses it in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland:
“… after a minute or two she walked on in the direction in which the March Hare was said to live. `I’ve seen hatters before,’ she said to herself; `the March Hare will be much the most interesting, and perhaps as this is May it won’t be raving mad – at least not so mad as it was in March.’ As she said this, she looked up, and there was the Cat again, sitting on a branch of a tree. “
So why not have a fantasy fancy dress party?
