A St. Patrick’s Tea Party

Today in history — St. Patrick’s Day 1922 — teachers in Lihue, Kauai, celebrated the green, Irish holiday by having tea on a Saturday afternoon. They ate tea, cake, and candy from wooden plates, each covered with a pasted shamrock, and used green paper napkins. Read more about it in “Lihue Teachers Entertain at Tea.”
