Ahhhh, St. Patrick’s Day – one of those special holidays that people all over the globe just love to celebrate. And with the luck of the Irish, it falls on a Saturday this year.
Originally established as a religious holiday to commemorate Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, the day has progressed into a full-on party in many cities in the US and abroad. With block parades, bagpipers, feasting, dancing, and copious amounts of beer – green beer that is, it’s no wonder that every year on March 17th, everyone is feeling a little Irish, and a lot lucky.

“May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.”
