Happy (Early) St. Patrick’s Day!

St Patty's Day

March 17th, also known as St. Patrick’s Day is when everyone gets to be Irish for a day!  Tomorrow is the anniversary of the death of Saint Patrick during the 5th century.  Saint Patrick was the most commonly recognized patron saint in Ireland and as a bishop would use a shamrock to explain the Christian Holy Trinity to his followers. Since it fell during Lent for Christians, it was the one day that activities prohibited during Lent like eating meat, feasting, drinking, and dancing were allowed.  On that note, here are some fun treat ideas to help you festively celebrate with friends, family, or co-workers (hopefully in your green scrubs!)
