St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Eve Callahan.
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.
There is also the option of decorating shirts and clothing with gold and silver glitter. Get a plain green t-shirt tank top dress whatever you would like to wear and add your design to it. Painting on shamrocks or pots of gold or even the words Happy St. Patrick s Day. Not to mention rainbows with pots of gold also. Br creative and add all sorts of flair to any green outfit you come up with. Don t forget to paint your face as well to go with the entire outfit you have created. Painted shamrocks and rainbows with pots of gold at the end of them are a great touch. You could go so far to add green temporary dye to your hair also.
If you and your sweetheart would prefer to have your own party St. Patricks Day can prove perfect for romance. A quiet candlelit dinner at home with a few party favors and green champagne to toast to your fortunes should do the trick. There are some excellent holiday themed gift baskets that can also help liven up a celebration for two. Some even offer all the party favors you need to go green and have a blast together. Celebrating St. Patricks Day in style is more than possible even if you are not skilled in the fine arts of party planning. This holiday just lends itself to making a party a blast even with minimal preparation.
Thus in a nutshell it can be seen that the legends revolving around St Patrick have been inseparably combined with the facts. The day invariably evokes the "I am Irish" sentiments alongwith patronizing St. Patrick for his services towards Ireland. And together they have helped us know much about the Saint and the spirit behind celebration of the day. March 17th might not be known as a day of romance but that does not mean you cannot make it so. In fact if you turn the tables on this festive holiday and add the right romantic touches your ladylove or princely sweetheart is likely to never see it coming.
