We can’t wait for March 17 here in South Orange, when we can celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with a pint of Guinness, a green ensemble and hopefully some luck of the Irish! No matter if you’re Dublin born-and-raised or you don’t have an ounce of Irish blood in you, there’s no excuse not to celebrate this fun holiday.
