St Patrick's Day
It’s almost time again to raid your closet & find any items of green clothing. Yep, St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, which must mean Spring is finally here!!!!
So who is this St. Patrick guy anyway? Well, St. Patrick is the patron Saint of Ireland and the day was named an official feast day, in the early 17th Century. Fast forward to 2016 and he even has his own website!
The day celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations usually involve public parades, festivities and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Traditionally the restrictions on drinking alcohol were lifted, which has created a holiday tradition of alcoholic consumption!
Impress your friends with your Irish knowledge. Did you know……
The longest place name in Ireland is Muckanaghederdauhaulia, in County Galway
One traditional Irish cure for a hangover was to be buried up to the neck in moist river sand.
It is not actually customary to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, but a sprig of Shamrock worn on a jacket lapel is.
