Happy St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s Day

March 15, 2019

It seems that every week theres something to celebrate, and with all the shenanigans going on in Westminster at the moment, I reckon we need all the celebrations we can get!

 Shamrock Special Disco Beads

This week its the turn of St Patrick. Each year on the 17th of March pretty much every person of Irish descent (and lots who arent!) will be throwing a party for all things Irish to raise a toast to one of their most important patron saints, St Patrick. In fact its believed St Patricks Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. Countries including Canada, the US, Brazil, Argentina and Australia. The shimmying of shamrocks is happening everywhere this Sunday.

Disco Beads St. Patrick's Day

 

Its down to the shamrock that the day usually involves wearing of a lot of green too, and the brighter the better. The reason for this is St Patrick used the three leaf shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity when he introduced Christianity to what was then a pagan Ireland in the 5th Century.

 
However, despite the 17th of March being the day St Patrick died (AD 385 - 461), it wasnt until the 17th Century that the date became recognised as a big old celebratory feast day. It was also named as a day when everyone was allowed to put Lent on hold, hence the reason its often one associated with lots (and lots!) of drinking. Today, were talking parades, parties, music, and dancing in big green hats whilst clutching a pint of cut-price Guinness.

Love
