St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Fran Petty.
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.

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.
