Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious celebration held every March 17th, which is the traditional day of the death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It was made an official day of feast in the early 17th century. The date commemorates St. Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and the heritage and culture of the Irish people. St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival.

Wear green, catch a parade,  go to your local, have some traditional Irish food and a green beer and come out to celebrate!
