March 17, 2022 - #StPatricksDay


Hello from Ireland! Unless you've been living under the Blarney Stone, March 17 is St. Patrick's Day. Saint Patrick's Day is the one day of the year when anybody can claim to be Irish, regardless of genealogy.


Parades are central to American St. Patrick's Day traditions. The first American St. Patrick's Day parade was held in 1601, at St. Augustine, Florida. In 1737, a group of Irish Protestants marched through Boston to honor their homeland's Patron Saint. The first St. Patrick's Day parade in New York City was organized by Irish soldiers serving in British colonies in 1762. Over two million people line the parade route in New York City, making it the world's largest St. Patrick's Day celebration.


Celebrated with green beer and whisky shots, the mythical Irish patron saint who introduced Christianity to Ireland became a worldwide phenomenon. Because of the American enthusiasm for what many consider a holiday, St. Patrick's Day is commemorated by more people worldwide than any other single-day national festival.

March 21, 2022 - #WorldPoetryDay


“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” — Elizabeth Barrett Browning's famous sonnet may as well be a proclamation of her passion for poetry.


On this date in 1999, UNESCO was formally founded. Poetry uses rhythms and imagery to stir the reader's emotions and imagination. Metered poetry uses long and short syllables to produce rhyme. Free verse poetry, which lacks rhyme or meter, has been around for a long time. Poems are composed of stylized paragraphs of up to 12 lines.


4,000 years ago, poetry was claimed to have been composed in Babylon. Nowadays, you may read a vast range of poems online. These can be haikus, limericks, sonnets or love songs.

March 31, 2022 - #NationalFarmWorkersDay


National Farm Workers Day is commemorated on March 31st to recognize the hired people who execute the most physically demanding activities such as plowing fields and running tractors. They labor hard hours crouching in the sun on fields in all climates. A farm's labor force is vital to its produce. Such large-scale farming would be impossible without farmers' devotion and unrelenting hard work. As a consequence, on this day, we thank all farmworkers for their efforts to secure our access to fresh produce.
