The Clock is Ticking

Happy St. Patrick Day to everyone. Get out your good mood and green clothes. Enjoy the day like the Irish and party. Best part: no school or work tomorrow, so there is nothing keeping you from spending the day with your friends and celebrate.

For all of you, who haven’t known it yet St. Patrick is the saint’s religious feast day in honor of the saint Patrick who died the fifth century.

The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. On St. Patrick’s Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast–on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage. – http://www.history.com/topics/st-patricks-day

But don’t put your green clothes away tomorrow. As you know Metropolia World Week is right around the corner and everything is on the way for the event. But there is one thing missing?

Committment for the day!!! To show everyone that you are supporting the event and have an interest in the topic wear something GREEN. Dig the scarf out of your closet that has been sitting there since last spring, or maybe green pants, you regretted buying. Now is your chance to make the best use of those clothes. Join in, when we say: GREEN, GREENER, METROPOLIA!!! 

Green is the colour of hope and sustainable and that is exactly our wish: Having more students thinking about the environment and their own impact on the world. If you want to make this world a better place and take on your responsibility then wear something green, so that we can see your support for our cause.

Business School Goes Green.
