Seward’s Day is a holiday in Alaska, the United States, to commemorate the US purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. This state holiday is annually held on the last Monday of March. It should not be confused with Alaska Day.
Spring is coming in the Northern Hemisphere! Daylight Saving Time has started in the US and Europe follows suit three weeks later, although the EU is preparing to scrap DST altogether. The equinox is on March 20 in most time zones.
