Happy St. Patrick's Day!

St. Patrick's Day was originally a holiday celebrating Ireland's patron saint and observed only in Ireland; it took many years until Irish who moved to the U.S. started the first St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City.
The reason we wear green is explained in many ways. People say blue was originally the color worn on the holiday but eventually green took over because of Ireland's nickname as "The Emerald Isle", the green in the green & orange Irish flag and the clover that St. Patrick used as a symbol in his teachings.

DON'T FORGET TO WEAR GREEN!
