March is here, and that means warmer temperatures, people venturing outside, and of course St. Patrick’s Day. The cultural and religious holiday is celebrated on March 17th every year, with parades, feasts, and of course drinking. Maryland happens to have a large Irish population, so it’s safe to say that in Howard County, we take St. Pat’s seriously!
