May the luck of the Irish find you this day and every day! Though it might have started out as a religious holiday, St. Patrick's Day has been transformed into a largely secular holiday of revelry and celebration of all things Irish. From wearing green clothes to enjoying green drinks, St. Patrick's Day has become a full-fledged holiday all on its own, and it continues to grow in popularity.
Don't let the opportunity pass you by to celebrate a holiday in the middle of winter. Three months past Christmas and New Year's, St. Patrick's Day offers a small ray of sunshine in the cold months before summer finally arrives. So throw on a green shirt, cook up some corned beef and cabbage and jump right in to celebrating the clover!
Cards are a great way to share in the comradery and spirit of St. Patrick's Day. Create your own with a theme of green, clovers, leprechauns or other decidedly Irish themes. It's a fun and different way to involve the whole family in a photo shoot to get the perfect picture to include on the card. You can use the card as a way to share the latest picture of your baby, decked head to toe in green. Or simply create a St. Patrick's Day card to keep in touch with loved ones that you haven't seen since the holidays.
St. Patrick's Day might not be a traditional holiday, but with its theming and spirit, it makes everyone want to join in and partake in the fun. You shouldn't feel obligated to send out St. Patrick's Day cards, but you should want to in order to keep the spirit of the holiday alive and keep spreading joy where it is needed the most.
