St Patricks Day Gifts / February 17, 2019 / Blanche Durham
Or you can also use a pretty ribbon and tie clusters of succulent plants such as Echeveria and then place them on the table. Surround the Echeveria with black rocks to add texture and contrast to your St Patrick s Day decorations. Another idea is to place a row of simple one potted Carmen succulent plants down the center of the table for décor. Then incorporate a combination of green and white votive candles along with pillar candles. This centerpiece will bring a sophisticated look to your St Patricks Day party table decorations while keeping within the green theme. According to the old saying everyone is Irish on St. Patricks Day.
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.
He was the grandson of a priest and the son of a tax collector. As a teen in the early 400 s Patrick was captured and brought over from Scotland to be a slave in pagan Ireland. For six years he slaved as a shepherd herding pigs and sheep and began to have religious visions. While spending time in prayer Patrick found himself retreating back to the God he had learned about when he was younger. Inspired by a dream he successfully escaped his bondage and went back to England traveling throughout the region. How did it begin? Irish immigrants coming to America brought their love of Saint Patrick with them.
