Five Things to Start Your Day: March 20
A few facts, figures and tidbits to start your Wednesday.
Wednesday: Cold with a mix of sun & clouds. Highs near 40.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy. Could be a few flurries. Upper 30s.
Friday: Partly sunny. Chilly. Near 40.
2. HAPPY SPRING!: At 7:02 a.m., the sun will cross directly over the Earth's equator during a moment known as the vernal equinox when both day and night are about equal — also the official start of the new season. The seasons are reversed for those in the Southern Hemisphere and the event instead signals the beginning of fall.
3. FREE SAT PRACTICE TEST: Are you ready for the SAT? A practice test is crucial to ward off those test day jitters and to reveal how you may score on the "real thing." Don't be surprised.

4. MAMA BALLROOM: This is an exciting group dance class for expectant and new mothers who believe in prenatal and postnatal fitness and want to have fun doing it.
You will be introduced to the basic movements and patterns that are used in many dances. You will learn about music, enjoy dancing to a variety of styles, and start to strengthen your balance and core.
Class begins at 11 a.m. at First Parish of Sudbury, Unitarian Universalist. Cost is $10.
5. ODD HOLIDAYS HELD TODAY: Today is Extraterrestrial Abductions Day. Keep one eye on the sky. And, be ready to duck, dodge, and to hide. UFO's may be everywhere, looking to abduct humans. If you are not careful, perhaps they will find you. Of course, there are more than a few people out there who are looking to be abducted by aliens, so they can travel to another planet.
