Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today we celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day, a cultural festivity which has evolved over the decades into a special day spent with friends and loved ones while wearing emerald colored clothing.

Some fun facts about today:

Leprechauns were not originally associated with St. Patty’s day but became incorporated by Celtic fairy stories as the villain that stole the pot of gold.

Corned beef and cabbage were an American innovation that has become a staple of this holiday, first served by immigrants on the east coast.

Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland.

Four leaf clovers are rare, with 1 in 5000 existing in the wild.

We hope you enjoy today and may the luck of the Irish be forever on your side.
