Annually, there are nearly 4 million dogs and puppies entering shelters across the country, and latest statistics indicate that half of them will not make it out alive. National Puppy Day was first observed in 2007 when animal advocates established the day to shine a light on the problems of overpopulation, overbreeding, and over-crowded shelters. They still hope to educate the public on these issues while encouraging all prospective pet owners to adopt a rescue animal – and quite literally save a life
We’ve barely put away the Mardi Gras decor and we’ve got another great reason to celebrate – and use a lot of left-over green beads! The Wearin’ of the Green Parade takes place here in Baton Rouge on March 18th, one day after the official holiday. But why do we celebrate this day anyway? Both a cultural phenomenon and a religious observance, the date was originally established as a Catholic feast day, but has grown into a celebration of all things Irish. Whether to show off your own Irish flair or to send a token to your Celtic friends, Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts is the place to call for the most beautiful and unique green florals in town.
Did You Know? St. Patrick was not Irish, he was born to a family in Great Britain. As a young man, he was kidnapped by pirates and was held captive in Ireland. After his release, he became a priest and returned to Ireland to be a missionary to the local Celtic druid peoples. Continue reading
