So, I’m not going to lie, I’m not a huge proponent of St. Patrick’s Day. I have two kids and although I love the wine, I am not quite able to keep up with the Irish drinking!
But, I know quite a few of my readers choose to celebrate the holiday (which is happening tomorrow), so I thought I would write a little about what it is, how you can celebrate and then add some funky printables at the end!
What is St. Patrick’s Day
It’s an Irish cultural holiday held each year to mark the death of one of the most notable Patron Saint’s of Ireland: Saint Patrick. Although he wasn’t actually Irish himself, Saint Patrick was responsible for converting much of Ireland to Christianity from Paganism and he became their Patron Saint.
Of course, what was once a religious holiday has now been adopted by various cultures with Irish roots and heritages and turned into a worldwide celebration!
So, how can you do this?
5 Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
