While the rest of the United States populace is getting jiggy with corned beef and green beer for St. Patrick’s Day, the Core Team celebrates a holiday far dearer to our hearts. Today is the sacred feast of Masemas, observed by showering a certain wonderful boy with gifts, cake, and lots of special attention. Please join us in wishing Master Mason Hopkins Bergin a fabulous first birthday! (Thank Aunt Ursula for the fancy birthday attire.)
