St.PattysDayAs the Irish would say, “May the luck of the Irish be with you!” And that can mean only one thing: St. Patrick’s Day is coming! Established as a religious holiday, St. Patrick’s Day has transformed from just a feast for St. Patrick to an all-out rockin’ green, shamrock shaking, green beer drinking holiday for all. Millions of people will gather around the world to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on Monday, March 17. Parades will be marched, kilts will be worn and rivers will be dyed green. So get up and celebrate!
