St Patrick's Day might be synonymous with green and guinness over here. How about obsessing over "green" literally and try to infuse sustainability into the festivities?

They'll complain, but convince them that good health brings good fortune! Other activities you can organise include face painting, Irish-themed dance or language workshops, and cultural sessions on the origins of St Patrick's Day.

Mar 20: International Day of Happiness

Suggested activities: make someone happy

On this day, you could have a simple exchange of letters and compliments between colleagues. We've done this before and everyone loved it.

Maybe just don't let AI write your message if you want it to be authentic. We can tell.
