Have you been pinched today? Did you remember to wear green? Even though I am not Irish(that I know of), if you didn’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day then you get pinched! I honestly don’t know a lot about the holiday and why it is celebrated all over the world, but I love the fun and whimsy of the holiday. Rainbows, pots of gold, green everything, and hoping you find that lucky 4 leaf clover. I want to share some ways that you can celebrate the green for St. Patrick’s Day.
Celebrate the Green
I love making fun decor that I paint myself for each holiday and recently painted this shamrock a pretty shade of green with gold accents. After all we are all on a search for that pot of gold whether it be real money or lasting friendships or whatever way you would like to be rich in life.
Some other ways we celebrate the holiday is by coloring our food and drinks green. When you have kids, it is a fun way to bring the spirit of the holiday in.
Did you know that St. Patrick’s Day is celebrating the life of Saint Patrick who was the foremost patron saint of Ireland. He was the one who helped introduce Christianity to Ireland so they use the day of his death to celebrate what he brought to their country. It has become a global celebration of Irish culture.
Did you know that the tradition of wearing green was to make people “invisible” to mischievous leprechauns who would go around pinching people.. or so they say!
Here are a few more ways that you can celebrate the holiday with some ideas from Catholic Central.
