St. Patrick's Day

Hello again, readers!

     This Monday is St. Patrick's Day, so get your green on and get ready to celebrate!  But first, it's time for a brief history lesson.  Saint Patrick is the patron saint and apostle of Ireland, and he is credited for bringing Christianity to Ireland.  Saint Patrick's Day is observed on March 17th every year as an official Feast Day to commemorate the day of his death.
     St. Patrick's Day is celebrated around the world, and here in the U.S., while it's not a legal holiday in most of the nation, it's a day to recognize Irish/Irish-American culture and heritage.  If you would like to join the festivities, check in your community - most cities have parades and events to commemorate the day.  Also, I'm sure there is at least one tavern in every city serving green beer.
     If you prefer to stay in, be sure to fix some of the traditional St Patrick's Day food!  Corned beef and cabbage for your main course paired with a loaf of Irish soda bread and to finish, a strong cup of Irish coffee. Your meal does require a dessert, so be sure to head over to our website and see what St. Patrick's Day sales are popping up!  Our cakes aren't Irish, but they are delicious!

All the best,
