NEW YORK—These days, it’s not uncommon for things to feel a little stagnant. Many people are still spending most of their time safe and at home, and without things like concerts, live sporting events and parties to break up the months, it can feel like every day is the same—which makes holidays even more fun to celebrate. This week, millions of people around the world donned their trusty green T-shirts and headed to the store to buy a can of Guinness to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, no matter how far away they are from The Emerald Isle. This week, to bring a little joy into the monotony, we’re taking a look at how independent ECPs celebrated March 17, ranging from getting all dressed up to special sales.
