St Patricks Day Gifts / February 16, 2019 / Cristina Pennington.
Depending on where you live you are likely to find the potential venues for a St. Patricks Day first date are quite incredible. Some of the best options include: Parades. Some communities host rather spectacular parades to celebrate Irish heritage. Complete with horses floats marching bands and more the festivities can go on for hours and are generally as much fun for adults as they are for kids. After all who can resist a parade? Irish pubs. Most Irish pubs also double as excellent dinner venues especially on St. Patricks Day. The atmosphere found within is particularly lively on this holiday.
If you and your sweetheart would prefer to have your own party St. Patricks Day can prove perfect for romance. A quiet candlelit dinner at home with a few party favors and green champagne to toast to your fortunes should do the trick. There are some excellent holiday themed gift baskets that can also help liven up a celebration for two. Some even offer all the party favors you need to go green and have a blast together. Celebrating St. Patricks Day in style is more than possible even if you are not skilled in the fine arts of party planning. This holiday just lends itself to making a party a blast even with minimal preparation.
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.
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.
