More than likely you probably aren’t going to be giving out gifts on St. Patrick’s Day. You may want to pick up some green gear yourself in the form of the perfect St. Patrick’s Day shirt. If you’re in the corporate world, you might just hope that your employees show up the next day! At least St. Paddy’s Day is on a Saturday this year for 2018, so everyone will have Sunday to recover from all those pints of Guinness, parades around the neighborhood, and the inevitable bar crawls that make up the holiday season.
