Saint Patrick’s Day

With Saint Patrick’s Day fast approaching I would like to share with you the history of this holiday. 

Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, the anniversary of Saint Patrick’s death in the 15th century. The Irish have reserved this day as a religious holiday for over 1000 years.  Saint Patrick’s day falls on the Christian season of lent, most families would go to church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon and into the night. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink, and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon (corn beef) and cabbage. This tradition is now celebrated all over the world.

The Selzer Realty Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration started almost 30 years ago as a customer appreciate day. Over the years it has evolved into something wonderful and huge but with the turn in the economy we felt it was important to make a change. Last year our office decided to really show our gratitude to our WONDERFUL community and thank them by truly giving back. Our office along with our terrific clients were able to donate over $18,000 to local organizations and charities, what an honor it was to be apart of that! 

Our office is making many positive changes this year and would still like to say THANK YOU to our clients but we will not be having “Selzer’s St. Patrick’s Day party”. We would like the community and our clients to know we will always appreciate you and will show you in our continued community efforts.

I would like to wish everyone a merry and safe Saint Patrick’s Day and say thank you so much to my clients! I look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the future.
