St Patricks Day Gifts / February 17, 2019 / Blanche Durham
There are some excellent choices for this holiday. If a fun first date that does not put too much pressure on romantic performance is to your liking St. Patricks Day can deliver. This holiday offers a lively lighthearted atmosphere that can make a date day or night one that will never be forgotten. In keeping with the green theme for your St. Patrick s Day party I thought I would provide you with some ideas for your dinner table decorations using succulent plants. However please note that in this article about St Patrick s Day decorations green will be referred to as good for the environment green.
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.
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.
