St. Patrick’s Days

There’s a new tradition on the docket for St. Patrick’s Day in 2022 – Jameson® Irish Whiskey will be turning the one-day holiday into a two-day spectacle. A double holiday for all the folks who missed the holiday over the past two years, make sure to double up on the green, double up on your luck. This year, it’s not “Happy St. Patrick’s Day,” it’s “Happy St. Patrick’s Days.” The first St. Patrick’s Day parade was held in the American colonies in New York City on March 17, 1762. Since then, Americans continue in celebrating what is the history, and the folklore, of St. Patrick himself. Get lucky in Chatham County this week!

It’s Oktoberfest Season

Is it fall yet? October is rounding the corner, which means the season of Oktoberfest is among us. Many years ago, in the year of 1810, Crown Prince Louis, who would become King Louis I of Bavaria, invited the citizens of Munich, Germany to his marriage celebration in front of the city gates, including a horse race, a feast and the origins of Oktoberfest. Though much has changed in the past 200 years, the spirit of community gathering remains unchanged. Today, Oktoberfest is celebrated in various forms worldwide from late September through early October, with an average consumption of one million gallons of beer annually. The tradition lives on in Chatham County on October 2. Cheers!
