Inspire: The Luck of the Irish

With Saint Patrick’s Day coming up, we thought we’d get a little festive!  Any reason to over-indulge and par up for festivities, we’re in!

What you may not know: while it is a cultural, public holiday, St. Patty’s Day is technically a Catholic and Anglican holiday  giving thanks to Saint Patrick to commemorate the arrival of Christianity to Ireland.  How do they show their appreciation: by wearing green and partaking in a feast!  (And for you know-it-alls, yes, this occurs during Lent, but the standard lent rules are lifted for the day – Amen).

Not Irish, but don’t want to get pinched this time around?  Here are some of our favorite  ways to incorporate green into your day without looking like this guy:
