St. Patrick’s Day is less than a week away! If you have lived in NEPA before you know how that day impacts almost a whole week around this area. If you’re new here you will quickly realize that St. Patty’s Day is a pretty big deal!

So to get you in the Irish mindset I’m going to give a whole post dedicated to good ol’ St. Patty himself! There’s some recipes, schedules and even some craft ideas to help you receive the luck o’ the Irish!
