Your friends at Goldstein & Bashner remind you to celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day responsibly.
St. Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of St. Patrick, is an annual holiday held on March 17th, in honor of the foremost patron saint of Ireland. St Patrick’s Day, while not a legal holiday in the United States, is still widely recognised and observed throughout the country as a celebration of Irish and Irish-American culture. The holiday has been celebrated in North America since the late 18th century.
