The holiday originated in Sweden as Våffeldagen. For Christians it marks 9 months before Christmas and the day that Archangel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary that she was pregnant. It also generally marks the beginning of spring. Swedes celebrate by making waffles!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Here's an old coupon card from a Kansas McDonald's restaurant in 1976. You could punch out the shamrock to wear and cash in the coupon for some free McDonaldland Cookies.
The happy little leprechaun seems to be enjoying a Shamrock Shake, while ready to smoke that pipe in his other hand.
