St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Gladys Hayden.
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.
Hosting a dinner or party for any age group will be more politically correct when attention is given to actual cultural images. Celtic historical crafts and Gaelic lettered items as well as Celtic music will lend more accuracy. Folk dance or DVD s of popular dance could be offered for entertainment. More sophisticated guests might enjoy readings from the poetry of Ireland which is rich and varied. Most of us will descend into the habit of bad Irish accents and excessive imbibing. It is the American way. Don t drink and drive. What Is Saint Patricks Day? Saint Patrick is a patron saint of Ireland.

The green aspect will be the succulents and to bring a bit of color in use a pink orchid in the arrangement for your St Patrick s Day decorations.
