Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
From the Best Baby Organics Team 
Today is the day you have to wear the color Green or you'll get pinched! But did you know that the holiday is named after Saint Patrick (circa AD 387-461), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland? It began as a purely Christian holiday and became an official feast day in the early 1600s. However, it has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Ireland's culture. It is a public holiday on the island of Ireland; including Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. It is also widely celebrated in places where there are large numbers of Irish immigrants and their offspring - this includes Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and Montserrat, among others. (information taken from Whatever you do today to celebrate, Best Baby Organics wishes you the luck of the Irish!
