St. Patrick’s Day folklore states that wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns and if you are not wearing green you may get pinched by those pesky creatures. With that tradition in mind, our employees got out their best green outfits and St. Patrick’s Day accessories to celebrate the holiday.
