How to Have Fun on St. Patrick’s Day:

And the History of St. Patrick’s Day

For some people the answer is simple: drink, drink, drink – and not usually water. Although restrictions on drinking during lent historically have been lifted for the holiday, there’s more to the holiday than imbibing.

In Ireland, the day remains a religious holiday of significance. The day commemorates St. Patrick and the arrival of Christianity to Ireland. St. Patrick is said to have used a shamrock plant to explain the holy trinity to the pagan Irish. Hence, the shamrock (and “the wearing of the green”) are symbols of the holiday still.

So, in that spirit, there is good reason to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! May we suggest the following:

1.¬†Wear a shamrock and discuss it’s significance.

2. Wear a fun t-shirt or the like as a conversation piece (see below).

3. Tell some jokes and/or tall tales. The Irish are famous for them. Listen to other’s tall tales and find out how easily you might be fooled!

4. Go to a parade, but stay safe.

5. If you must drink, drink in moderation and have a designated driver.

Okay, enough preaching. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!
