St. Patrick’s Day is an annual feast day that celebrates Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. The act of wearing green ribbons and shamrocks in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day was originated by Saint Patrick and dates back as early as the 17th century.
We may not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the same way as it was originally celebrated, however the tradition of wearing green and perceiving the four-leaf clover as a lucky charm is still part of modern day celebration.
It has been estimated that there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every one four-leaf clover – making them extremely rare to find. For this reason, four-leaf clovers are considered to bring good luck to their finders. According to legend, each leaflet represents something – the first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.
Isn’t that what we really want for the children battling cancer? Hope, faith, love, and maybe just a little good luck?
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the significance of the four-leaf clover, and the lucky charm in your life, we ask you to give $4.00 to CURE Childhood Cancer – just $4.00 to help us reach our goal of $4,444 in the month of March to fund invaluable childhood cancer research.
