@jmorgan A few things are going on now in the US/Asia/probably Europe.
It's spring break and third-term break this week and/or next week in a lot of places. Then some days off are coming for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Monday too during the first/second week of April.
So a lot of kids are out of school and parents are taking time off work to go on vacation with their kids somewhere.
As well, St. Patrick's day can cause a drop in traffic for one/two days as people are celebrating which is March 17. Then Mother's Day is coming as well in some countries.
Lots of holidays over the next few weeks.
