Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

May the spring bring you happy surprises in unexpected places.

Long before the shamrock became associated with St. Patrick’s Day, the four-leaf clover was regarded by ancient Celts as a charm against evil spirits. In the early 1900s, O. H. Benson, an Iowa school superintendent, came up with the idea of using a clover as the emblem for a newly founded agricultural club for children in his area. In 1911, the four-leaf clover was chosen as the emblem for the national club program, later named 4-H.

  • Blue was the color originally associated with St. Patrick, not green.
  • The first St. Patrick’s Day parade in the American colonies was held in New York City in 1762.
  • St. Patrick’s Day is the traditional day for planting peas, even in the snow!
  • Cabbage seeds are often planted today, too, and old-time farmers believed that to make them grow well, you needed to plant them while wearing your nightclothes!
