St Patricks Day Gifts / February 16, 2019 / Eve Owen
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.
Remember St. Patricks Day falls on a Monday this year so a date request for this night is likely to surprise instantly. Excellent ways to go for the ask out include sending flowers with an invitation attached having a festive holiday gift basket with a formal invitation included delivered or simply picking up the phone and asking in your sweetest voice. Step 2. Set the menu. Unless you are really good in the kitchen I suggest picking up the phone and talking to a local restaurant about a menu. You can go with traditional Irish such as stew or corned beef or whatever happens to suit your tastes.
On March 17 1762 Irish soldiers who served in the English military marched through New York City. The parade and music stirred their emotions and brought back memories of Ireland and fellow soldiers they had lost. Irish Americans began observing the holiday publicly in Boston and held the first St. Patrick s Day Parade (organized by the Charitable Irish Society) in New York City in 1766. Even today the St. Patrick Day parade is a mixture of religious beliefs and many people go to Ireland for the festivities fireworks and the parade. Parades take place in other places too: London Paris Rome Moscow Beijing Hong Kong Singapore as well as throughout the Americas.
