Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wearing green has become a staple of St. Patrick’s Day, but the holiday was originally associated with the color blue. It’s thought that the shift to green happened because of Ireland’s nickname “The Emerald Isle,” the green in the Irish flag and the shamrock, or clover. Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn as early as the 17th century.


"There are good ships, and there are wood ships, The ships that sail the sea. But the best ships, are friendships, And may they always be."


- Irish Proverb


We hope your festivities were fun and relatively safe. Cheers to good luck and a fortuitous rest of the month.
