For our Irish and Irish American friends - wishing you a fantastic Saint Patrick's Day! May your day be full of cheer and celebration of your roots, heritage, and of the story of Saint Patrick.
A Few Facts About St. Patrick's Day:
"St Patrick is one of Ireland's patron saints and many Americans with Irish ancestry remember him on March 17. Patrick's Day is fixed on March 17, but may occasionally be moved by Catholic Church authorities. This happened in 1940, so that the celebrations would not fall on Palm Sunday, and in 2008 to avoid Holy Monday, the last Monday before Easter Sunday."
"Saint Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the "Apostle of Ireland", he is the primary patron saint of Ireland, the other patron saints being Brigit of Kildare and Columba. Patrick was never formally canonised, having lived prior to the current laws of the Catholic Church in these matters. Nevertheless, he is venerated as a Saint in the Catholic Church and in the Eastern Orthodox Church, where he is regarded as equal-to-the-apostles and Enlightener of Ireland. He is also regarded as a Saint by the Anglican Communion and the Lutheran Churches.
Saint Patrick's Day is observed on 17 March, the supposed date of his death. It is celebrated inside and outside Ireland as a religious and cultural holiday. In the dioceses of Ireland, it is both a solemnity and a holy day of obligation; it is also a celebration of Ireland itself."

New Mexico's INFLUENCE Magazine celebrates Black History Month with the highlight of rodeo legend and cowboy, Bill Pickett. Willie "Bill" Pickett was born in 1870 in Texas, and quickly became a recognized showman amongst country fairs and rodeo events. He even was one of the first African-American film stars of the 1920s, where he had ample opportunity to show off his unique skills - including a technique he himself invented, called "Bulldogging."
Bill Pickett tragically passed away from a ranch accident in 1932. However, his legacy lives on today as he has been portrayed in modern films by leading Hollywood actors; the United States Postal Service also honored him by releasing his very own stamp in 1993.
