Atlantic County Magazine – GACCA Article Print Date 3.12.2021 By Judy Brenna It’s that time again. Where everyone gets to pretend for a day that they’re of Irish decent and commits an entire 24 hours to copious ale and Irish whiskey consumption and insisting on speaking like a little leprechaun. I have often been caught shouting “did ya loose yer lucky charms, laddie?” throughout the years, also meandering through the day carrying a giant stick, slurring to random people that
“Discount Candy Day!” Atlantic County Magazine – GACCA Article Print Date 2.19.2021 By Judy Brenna The Day after Valentine’s Day has been widely accepted as the alternative to Cupid’s special day, an anti-holiday if you will.
