Erin Go Bragh - Saint Patrick's Day

When: March 17th.

Saint Patrick's day is in honor of the Patron Saint of Ireland, who brought christianity to the Emerald Isles, as Ireland is known. It is truly a day of celebrating Irish history, ancestry, traditions and customs.

Saint Ptaricks' Day has many symbols and traditons, from shamrocks and leprechauns, to green beer and Corned Beef and Cabbage. Saint Patrick's Day parades are popular in many cities around the U.S. Interestingly, the first St. Patrick’s Day parade did not take place in Ireland. It took place in New York City, in 1762. 

Are you Irish, me lads and me lassies?! Well, the saying goes everyone is a little Irish on Saint Patricks's Day.

Roots of Tradition: Saint Patrick's day is held in honor of Saint Patrick, the missionary who brought christianity to the Irish people in the 400's AD.

Erin Go Braugh is perhaps the most common Irish term you will hear. It means "Ireland Forever"

Did You Know? Over 34 million Americans are of Irish descent. That's almost nine times the populaton of Ireland!

Favorite Sayings:

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the rain fall softly upon your fields. And the sun shine warm upon your face.

Top of the mornin' to you.....(and the rest of the day to 'me self!)

May there always be work for you to do.

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine on your windowpane.

May the hand of a friend always be near you.

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

This Author's favorite:

May the wind at your back not be from the cabbage and corned beef that you eat today!

May your blessings far outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

Everyone's at least a little bit Irish on St. Patrick's Day. (how true, how true).

When Irish eyes are smiling... they are probably up to something.
