Can you believe it’s already March? 2015 is already closing in on its first quarter. It’s crazy how fast time flies, right? Well we think it may be time to slow down a bit and enjoy each of the changing seasons and holidays. March means St. Paddy’s Day and celebrating all things green!

Every year on March 17, the world pauses to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. What began as the observance of a religious holiday for the Irish, is now an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing and foods.

**Fun Fact: According to ABC News, the correct shortened version of St. Patrick’s Day is St. Paddy’s Day; although, the abbreviation is a commonly misspelled as St. Patty’s Day.
