The wearing of the green
Today is March 17, a day when all of us feel just a wee bit Irish. St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday not just for those of Irish heritage, but for anyone who has ever seen a leprechaun, picked a four-leaf clover, danced a jig, or read a story by James Joyce. This day of celebration falls on a Thursday this year . . . ah, the luck of the Irish! Most of us will be celebrating in our favorite drinking establishments. But be sure to stay safe while you’re enjoying the festivities. Designate a non-Irish driver – if you can find one. If not, take a cab. Or maybe you’re lucky enough to have an Irish pub just around the corner. In any case, have a safe, happy St. Patrick’s Day.
