St Patricks Day Gifts / February 18, 2019 / Kelly Roberson
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.
A major parade takes place in Dublin and in most other Irish towns and villages. The three largest parades of recent years have been held in Dublin New York and Birmingham England. Parades also take place in other centers London Paris Rome Moscow Beijing Hong Kong Singapore and throughout the Americas. In the United States St. Patrick s Day would not be St. Patrick s Day unless the Chicago River is dyed green. Also St. Paddy s Day has little religious or historical significance. Established in Boston in 1737 it is essentially a time to put on a "Kiss Me I m Irish" button and parade drunken through the streets singing a mangled version of "Danny Boy" in celebration of one s real or imagined Irish ancestry.
