St Patricks Day Shirts and Gifts Are Sure To Please All of us who Are Irish for a Day!

Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated worldwide by Irish people and increasingly by non-Irish people (usually in Australia and North America). Celebrations are generally themed around all things Irish and, by association, the colour green. Both Christians and non-Christians celebrate the secular version of the holiday by wearing green or orange, eating Irish food and/or green foods, imbibing Irish drinks (such as Guinness or Baileys Irish Cream) and attending parades. The first civic and public celebration of Saint Patrick's Day took place in Boston, Massachusetts in 1737. Can You Say- Shamrocks Everywhere!

Shamrock is the common name for clover that is native to Ireland. Its proper name is Irish Seamrog, or "little clover", and Ireland has adopted this plant as the national emblem of Ireland. However, it's interesting to add that there are hundreds of varieties of clover throughout Ireland. Legend has it that Saint Patrick used the Hop Shamrock, with its trifoliate nature, to demonstrate how the three separate elements of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit are united into One entity-the Holy Trinity. But even prior to Saint Patrick, it is thought that shamrocks, particularly the small-leaved, white clover, were considered good luck symbols in Ireland. Pre-Christian Celts used Shamrocks to keep evil spirits away. Now, the Irish in Ireland and abroad wear shamrocks to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day on March 17th each year.

Some thing never change and when it comes to St Patricks Day, we still wear green, clothes ourselves in lots of shamrocks and drink green beer on March 17th- the day when everyone brings a little bit of Ireland to the celebration. Thinking of hosting a party? Here are some simple tips and fun gifts to get the party started!!

First, put on something green. This has nothing to do with preventing getting pinched or looking like a leprechaun. It has everything to do with remembering the green hills of Ireland. Next, check out this cool website for lots of fun foods, crafts and activities that will bring out the leprechaun in everyone! And dont forget to plan ahead with some unique custom stamps, fun four leaf clover stickers, great irish t-shirts and so much more!
