Why St. Patrick’s Day Activities?
You don’t have to be Irish to join in the spirited fun of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17. The holiday celebrates the Irish and Irish-at-heart with food, fun and lots of green for shamrocks (the leaf of the clover plant) and leprechauns (little green “fairies”).

Why Celebrate Chinese New Year?
Share the world with your kids. While they may be able to see just about anything on the Internet, those images don’t always give the whole picture. Teaching kids about cultures and customs from around the world provides some context.
Activities like celebrating Chinese New Year will give them a taste of what life is like for kids just like them in other countries and help them grow up to be better global citizens.
Plus, Chinese New Year is really cool. It’s loud, bright and exciting… and delicious!
