St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Francisca Mccarty
Americans have adopted this holiday like fanatics: wearing green drinking (green) beer and eating corned beef and cabbage (sometimes green too). In Chicago the Chicago River is dyed green for the holiday! St. Patrick s Day is a fun holiday filled with friends food and drinking. Not to mention a lot of green. If you have St. Patrick s Day parties or get together coming up for this holiday or want to plan ahead on what to wear here are a few ideas to make the your holiday clothing as festive as the rest of the day. Of course you will want to go all green. That great thing about this holiday is that just about every store you go to now has t-shirts shorts skirts pants and accessories to dress yourself up with.
There is nothing however etched in stone that says the festivities cannot also include a few sweet gestures and an eye toward passion. If you want to dazzle your sweetheart and celebrate Irish roots whether you have them or not there is an excellent plan you can put into action for a holiday inspired night at home. It does involve a few steps and it will take some work on your part but the payoff will be a March 17th that you and your sweetheart will not soon forget. Step 1. The ask out. If you do not live together you will have to ask out your sweetheart.
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.
