Happy St. Patrick’s Day

St.Patricks day Greeting

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand


St Patrick the patron saint of Ireland, the subject of legends; famous for driving the snakes out of Ireland, which is thought to be symbolic of the ending of pagan worship in Ireland.

Saint Patrick’s Day is associated with everything Irish: anything green, white and gold, from shamrocks to pots of gold. For those who celebrate its intended religious meaning, St. Patrick’s Day is traditionally a spiritual day, a day of renewal. Since the holiday began in Ireland and as the Irish spread out around the world, they took with them their history, their culture, and celebrations. The biggest observance of all is, of course, in Ireland. With the exception of restaurants and pubs, almost all businesses close on March 17th. All over the world big cities and small towns alike celebrate with parades, “wearing of the green,” music and songs, Irish food and drink, and activities for kids such as crafts, colouring and games. Some communities even go so far as to dye rivers or streams green!

People throughout Ireland from the banks of the Liffey to the Hills of Donegal, to the distant shores or the faraway lands where many have gone to find their fortune both past and present, hold parades and festivals that celebrate the Irish culture. Local musicians perform during the parades, from street corners to barstools. St. Patrick’s Day festivals illustrate an atmosphere of the famous Irish welcome and warmth; bringing a little piece of the Motherland to the millions of Irish emigrants and diaspora who find themselves thinking of home.

They say everyone who appreciates Ireland and the Irish becomes an Honorary Irishman on 17th March with this in mind, the Staff and Management of CCM Recruitment International (a 100% Irish company) are taking this opportunity to wish you, Very Happy Patricks Day as you to join with us in celebrating our National Holiday.

Happy International Women’s Day

International Women's day

International Women’s Day held on March 8th is a day globally celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. International Women’s Day originally called International Working Women’s Day; has been celebrated since the early 1900, a period of great change in the industrialised world with booming population growth and increase in radical ideologies. The earliest known observance of Women’s day was in 1908 in New York where 15,000 marched through the streets demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights. In 1910 in Copenhagen at a conference of more than 100 women from 17 countries proposed that every year in every country there should be a celebration on the same day, an International Women’s day. Following the unanimous agreement , in 1911 International Women’s Day was honoured in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland for the first time. (http://www.internationalwomensday.com/About)

In 1975, International Women’s Day was celebrated by the United Nations for the first time. In December of 1977, the General Assembly invited member nations to proclaim March 8th as the United Nations as the UN Day for Women’s Rights and world peace.  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Women%27s_Day)

In 1996, the UN started the practice of an annual them centred in and around Women. In early, 2000 and the years following International Women’s Day fell out of favour and stalled in many countries, it was revived in 2011 and has continued to gain recognition and grow again in strength. (http://www.internationalwomensday.com/About)


Did You Know?

  1. On March 8th 1914, Sylvia Pankhurst was arrested in front of Charing Cross Station as she made her way to speak in Trafalgar Square, to those who took part in a march in support of Women’s Suffrage.
  2. In 1917, women in Russia began a strike for “bread and peace” in reaction to the deaths of over 2 million Russian soldiers who died in WWI, opposed by political leaders, the women continued to strike for four days until the Czar was forced to abdicate and the provisional government granted the women to right to vote. The strike commenced on 23rd February in the Julian Calendar which was in use in Russia at the time, but fell on the 8th March in the Gregorian Calendar.
  3. In 2001, the global internationalwomensday.com was launched in effort to reenergise interest in the day as a celebration of the successful achievements of women.


What The Leap? Why Exactly Do We Have A Leap Year?

Leap year

It takes 365 days for the earth to orbit the sun, which makes up a year, right? Nope, sorry, it takes 365.2422 days for a complete orbit of the earth around the sun but the Gregorian calendars only count 365 days. It was Julius Caesar’s astronomer Sosigenes who came up with the 365-day year with an extra day every four years to accommodate the extra hours not counted and it’s from this the Gregorian Calendar evolved. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/12177017/Leap-Year-2016-Why-does-February-have-29-days-every-four-years.html

clock-884600_1280To correct the difference between the solar system and the Gregorian calendar February gets an extra day every four years. This ensures that our clocks and the seasons are in harmony with the earth.(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/12177017/Leap-Year-2016-Why-does-February-have-29-days-every-four-years.html) If we didn’t make the correction, eventually our seasons would be out of whack and jumping around the calendar, in fact in 750 years’ time June would be found in the middle of winter.(http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/google-doodleleap-day-2016-what-is-a-leap-year-and-why-do-we-have-them-a6897486.html)

So once every four years there’s an extra day, simple. Right? No, it’s slightly more complicated, technically a leap year isn’t every four years, for example the year 2000 was a leap year but 1700, 1800 and 1900 were not. Normally there is a leap year for every year that you can divide by four, but if that year can be divided by 100 but not exactly by 400 than it’s not. This is because adding an extra day to the calendar every four years, actually over corrects the difference since the earth year is not exactly 365.25 days long, so every 400 years, three leap years are removed. This solution was thought up by Pope Gregory XIII’s astronomers when they introduced the Gregorian Calendar in 1582. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/12177017/Leap-Year-2016-Why-does-February-have-29-days-every-four-years.html)

Okay, that explains why we have a leap year but why is it in February?

 This goes back to the Romans and their calendars. All other months in the Julian calendar have 30 or 31 days except February. Under Julius Caesar, February had 30 days and July the month named after him had 31, August had only 29 days. This didn’t suit his successor Caesar Augustus, who because of pride wanted his month to have the same number of days as Julius Caesar’s, so he took two days from February and added them to August so it would have 31 days as well because of this the extra day in the calendar every four years is added to February. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/12177017/Leap-Year-2016-Why-does-February-have-29-days-every-four-years.html)

Did you know?

  1. The chances of having a birthday on a leap day are extremely slim. The odds are on 1 in 1,461!
  2. People who are born on Feb 29th are often referred to as “leaplings” or “leapers”. There is only roughly 4.1 million people around the world who have been born on the 29th.
  3. There is a Leap Year Capital- the town of Anthony in the US holds a Leap Year Festival every four years and is the self-proclaimed Leap year Capital http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/12177017/Leap-Year-2016-Why-does-February-have-29-days-every-four-years.html)
  4. Women can propose to men in leap year- one theory for this is St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick that women had to wait too long for their suitors to propose, so St Patrick then supposedly gave women the chance to ask every four years.( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year )
