Submarine Day

When : Always April 17th or March 17th

Submarine Day.... does it celebrate the submersible boat, or the big hero sandwich? Most everywhere you find documentation on this day, it hails today as a day to celebrate the submarine boat. And, we would celebrate this event on April 17th, as the U.S. Submarine Force was established on this date in 1900.

Enjoy Submarine Day by watching movies featuring them. Or, read a book about submarines. If you live near a naval museum, take a drive to see a submarine today, and if allowed, go aboard.

If you work at a deli, it's perfectly okay to celebrate Submarine Day with a hero submarine of your choice. If you own the deli, give us a deal and run a Submarine Day special. And in this case, celebrate Submarine Day.on March 17th.

Question: What is the world's most well known submarine? It's the Yellow Submarine, written and recorded by the Beatles.


And of course:

Erin Go Bragh - Saint Patrick's Day

When: March 17th.

Saint Patrick's day is in honor of the Patron Saint of Ireland, who brought christianity to the Emerald Isles, as Ireland is known. It is truly a day of celebrating Irish history, ancestry, traditions and customs.

Are you Irish perchance!?! Well, the saying goes everyone is a little Irish on Saint Patricks's Day.

Roots of Tradition: Saint Patrick's day is held in honor of Saint Patrick, the missionary who brought christianity to the Irish people in the 400's AD.

Erin Go Braugh is perhaps the most common Irish term you will hear. It means "Ireland Forever"

Did You Know? Over 34 million Americans are of Irish descent. That's almost nine times the populaton of Ireland!
