As we eagerly await the next season, March begins that transition period from Winter to Spring. March is named after the Roman god, Mars, and much of Europe used March as the beginning of the New Year until the mid-1700’s.  March also contains the holiday, St. Patrick’s Day, which is synonymous with green shamrocks and beer drinking.  It is a national holiday in Ireland and the first U.S. St. Patrick’s Day celebration was held in Boston in 1737.  With shamrocks being the national flower of Ireland, it is easy to understand why it is called “The Emerald Isle,” however, the original color of St. Patrick’s Day used to be blue.  The citizens of Ireland began wearing shamrocks and green ribbons in the early 1700’s.  So, don’t forget to wear your green unless you want a friendly pinch.
