St. Patrick’s Day Coming Up!

Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day! A day filled with green, corn beef and a lot of cabbage. As it is a fun holiday, many do not know about the history of the holiday. St. Patrick’s day  was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Take it from Victoria Jepson, who is of Irish decent, “I am excited to celebrate with my mom and sister. “Please help the Irish celebrate this holiday on Saturday, as it will be filled with joyous memories and make sure to wear all the colors of green!
