St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Chris Burris
When it comes to St. Patrick s Day there can never be too much green or flair. It s a great holiday to go over the top and be a green leprechaun or a happy shamrock. March 2006 - Gift Ideas for St. Patrick s Day One may ask whether it is appropriate to give gifts in celebration of St. Patrick s Day. For most of us gifts are not necessary. However for the Irish at heart gifts are a celebration of their heritage. Is it possible to develop a top ten list of St. Patrick s Day gifts? Of course! My recommendations are as follows: 10. A CD of celtic music gets every St. Patrick s Day party rollicking.
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.
Americans have adopted this holiday like fanatics: wearing green drinking (green) beer and eating corned beef and cabbage (sometimes green too). In Chicago the Chicago River is dyed green for the holiday! St. Patrick s Day is a fun holiday filled with friends food and drinking. Not to mention a lot of green. If you have St. Patrick s Day parties or get together coming up for this holiday or want to plan ahead on what to wear here are a few ideas to make the your holiday clothing as festive as the rest of the day. Of course you will want to go all green. That great thing about this holiday is that just about every store you go to now has t-shirts shorts skirts pants and accessories to dress yourself up with.
