Everyone's Irish on Saint Patrick's Day!
Summertime on 02/26/2009
|Part of my maternal heritage is Irish and may I say, it is with pride. My mom loved to celebrate her Irish heritage and my dad, of Italian heritage, joined in enthusiastically. Our kitchen, dining room and living room were ablaze with green, well so was my mom, wearing as much green as she could, including her jewelry. We always enjoyed a dinner of corned beef and cabbage on Saint Patrick's Day, as a matter of fact, quite often during the year. Ah, the memories of those days gone by. |
Saint Patrick's Day celebrates Saint Patrick (circa 385–461 AD), one of the patron saints of Ireland. (The answer to question ten is California) March 17th is celebrated worldwide by Irish people and increasingly by non-Irish people. Everyone wants in on the celebration!
Whatever one's religious preference, or lack thereof, the holiday is recognized by wearing green or orange, enjoying Irish food (primarily corned beef and cabbage)and/or green foods, Irish drink (such as Guinness or Baileys Irish Cream), as well as plenty of green beer!
My questions address Saint Patrick's Day celebrations and Irish traditions, some of which have become known internationally.
"Sure and begorrah", I hope you enjoy the content, but for sure, I wish for you a most splendid day!
