Go Green for St. Patricks Day!

St. Patricks Day is such a fun holiday! When the purpose of a day is mainly to just celebrate, you can’t go wrong! St. Patricks Day has long morphed from a cultural holiday to one celebrated by many ethnicities. Here in America, the holiday is widely enjoyed.

When you head out to work, school or an evening party tomorrow, make sure you are wearing green! It is ancient tradition to wear something of the color green on this holiday. It is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the “wearing of the green”). St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. This story first appears in writings dating back to 1726, however, many say that it may be even older.

Here are some green items that we are accessorizing with:
