St Patricks Day Gifts / February 16, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins.
There are some excellent choices for this holiday. If a fun first date that does not put too much pressure on romantic performance is to your liking St. Patricks Day can deliver. This holiday offers a lively lighthearted atmosphere that can make a date day or night one that will never be forgotten. In keeping with the green theme for your St. Patrick s Day party I thought I would provide you with some ideas for your dinner table decorations using succulent plants. However please note that in this article about St Patrick s Day decorations green will be referred to as good for the environment green.
We wear green and don t know why. We may live in communities that dye their rivers green or present bar patrons with green beer. Restaurants serve corned beef and cabbage amid leprechaun decorations or plastic pots-of-gold. This is a difficult dish to prepare: eat out! School children enjoy cupcakes of any flavor with green icing. Other snacks may be potato chips or potato sticks. Parties for St Patricks Day are sure to be decorated with green and white twisted streamers and four leaf clovers. Paper party goods are the only option for children s parties but some adult dinners feature Irish linen and good china.
The Irish aren t much like the people that Irish Americans pretend to be on St Patricks Day. But please don t take our stereotypes away. We love them so. Descendents of those who immigrated during the Irish potato famines of the 18th and 19th century generally only have St Patricks Day to remind them of those long ago ancestral ties. We may not have any real understanding of the country at all. Still we must beg pardon of the modern Irish citizenry and continue our traditions. So with tongue in cheek every American who likes a mid-March excuse to celebrate professes to be partly of Irish ancestry.
Many people use St. Patrick s day as an excuse to give others unique gifts. Most of those gifts have themes revolving around the Irish something green or sometimes even beer! But why not give a completely unique St. Paddy s Day gift that will be remembered and appreciated for a long time into the future? I m suggesting giving a digital picture frame as a gift this March 17. Think about it. You can customize a digital picture frame uniquely for the person you re giving it to by simply taking the time to pre-load it with pictures they re sure to appreciate.
