St Patricks Day Gifts / February 17, 2019 / Blanche Durham.
Thus a shamrock is given lot of reverence in Ireland. Leprechuans or Irish fairy people are also associated with St. Patrick s festival. In Irish mythology a leprechaun is a type of elf said to inhabit the island of Ireland. In recent times the St. Patrick s Day celebrations in Dublin have been extended to a week-long event called St. Patrick s Festival encompassing a spectacular fireworks display (Skyfest) open-air music street theater and the traditional parade. Over one million people attended the celebrations in 2004. St. Patrick s Day is celebrated worldwide by the Irish and those of Irish descent.
But there is no reason to just stick to green. Look for different shades of green and throw some silver in there also. Pairing multiple shades of green together with even green shoes and accessories such as jewelry and hats is a fun way to get ready for St. Patrick s Day. If your girl find green tights to go with a green skirt and shirt add a vest as well and pointy shoes to be a leprechaun. There are great top hats in green with shamrocks on them or headbands with shamrocks on springs too. Guys can dress as leprechauns also using a vest green pants adding gold coins and chains. Such as a pocket watch or making a pot of gold to carry.
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.
Just like St. Valentines Day St. Patrick s Day (i.e 17th March) commemorates the demise of the revered patronised Irish saint St. Patrick. So what is the legend behind St. Patrick which led to the association of a festival in his name and how is the day celebrated ? The story goes like this... Originally born (in later half of fourth century) to Roman parents in Scotland or Roman England (there are conflicting opinions regarding the place of birth) he was previously known by the name Maewyn Succat. He was given a Romanicized name Patricius leading to him being known as Patrick. Patrick was originally a pagan ( a non-believer of Christianity ). During his childhood he was kidnapped and sold as a slave to the Celtic Druids who then ruled Ireland.
