St Patricks Day is almost here! It’s time to get ready for green, green, and more green! Everything can be green on St Patricks Day, even your clothes and food recipes. If you decide not to wear green, watch out or you’re friends may pinch you. But, don’t worry, hopefully those silly ol’ leprechauns can save you! You may be wondering the real reason behind those lucky clovers. The history of St Patricks Day is a day of spiritual healing and renewal. We celebrate it to remember the Saint of Ireland, St. Patrick.
