Have Some St. Patrick’s Day Fun

Have Some St. Patrick's Day Fun

Sometimes you just need more fun in your life! It’s been a long winter season here, and I’m really looking forward to spring. So here is a post all about fun things to eat, watch, and do for St Patrick’s Day Fun!

“St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the life of Saint Patrick—the patron saint of Ireland. This influential missionary has been credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day takes place on March 17 each year because St. Patrick’s death is believed to have been on March 17, 461.”

Ever wonder how the Shamrock got associated with St Patrick’s Day?

“We wear a shamrock on St. Patrick’s Day because, legend says, St. Patrick used its three leaves to explain the Holy Trinity in his teachings. (The Trinity is the Father, the Son, and the Spirit as three divine persons who are one divine being [God].) The truth of the St. Patrick legend, however, is in question, as there is no direct record that the saint actually used the shamrock as a teaching tool.”

The Harry Potter Movies & Ireland

I would love to visit Ireland someday, mostly because it looks gorgeous. Also, because my father’s side of the family emigrated from Ireland. But now I have another reason to visit. I discovered in the article below that there were two Irish locations used in the Harry Potter movies. If you, too, are a Harry Potter fan, check this article out:

This post is written from the perspective of an American. However, I wanted to include how the Irish celebrate this holiday. I learned that many Irish people where a corsage of green shamrocks on their right breast. We Americans are the ones who wear green clothing, and drink green beer.

  1. Wonderful post! I write in my book about our strategy of celebrating the smaller holidays, especially during this time of winter doldrums 🙂 For St. Patrick’s Day, we always have a big corned beef and cabbage dinner (used to have Irish soda bread, too, before my son became gluten-intolerant). I decorate with window clings and decorations my sons made in school when they were little. And, of course, we always wear our green!

    I would also suggest books and movies set in Ireland – watching Riverdance would be a great option, too!

    Thanks for the good ideas! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
