St. Patrick’s Day 2017

St. Patrick’s Day 2017

What does St. Patrick’s Day 2017 mean to you?

St Patrick's Day Facebook cover

I thought I’d give you a little bit of St. Patrick’s Day history before asking what Friday the 17th is going to mean for you!  OMG, there’s so much information on Google that I hardly know where to start!

St. Patrick was the foremost patron saint of Ireland. In the 17th century the day of his death, March 17, was made an “official Christian feast day” and we’ve carried the tradition of wearin’ the green since then! Like so many holidays that began in with a religious tradition, in recent years, there has been criticism of Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations for having become too commercialized and for fostering negative stereotypes of the Irish. There’s quite a bit of history about him which you might find interesting at History of Saint Patrick.

Do you remember spending an afternoon in the sun looking for a 4-leaf clover (I did that in the grass in front of my house in Denver as a young girl…gee I still do it today as a not-so-young-girl!). After all,  what could be more lucky that a green shamrock?

Our customers help us celebrate by ordering gift baskets and flowers and plants for this fun day.

Here’s a picture of one of the gift baskets that I had the pleasure to design this year. Looks lucky doesn’t it?

I must editorialize here. You will forgive me, please, if I take a moment to tell you about something else that’s in March and that’s green.

What are YOUR plans for Friday the 17th? Are you going to be wearing green or watching basketball? Maybe both? Maybe you have your own special way of celebrating? We’d love to hear what that is!

Here’s sending you lucky wishes for your Green Holiday!
