The Celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day
What happens on March 17 is known by everyone, for it’s a day of celebration to remember everything that was represented by the patron saint of Ireland. 17 March might be the traditional death date of St. Patrick, yet it is the day when his memories are brought to life each year by Irish people all around the world. Like various other celebrations, this event is not short on traditions either. Some of the most prolific customs are followed on this day. Before we move on the traditions, reserve your place for this event and start planning the day. Let’s have a look at the traditions followed on this day:
1. Go Green:
Not literally! People do not paint themselves green (they do dye their hair however), but since it is the symbolic color of St. Patrick’s Day, the color will be found abundantly everywhere. People with all green t-shirts that might or might not have the saying “Kiss me, I’m Irish” written on them are a common sight. Leprechauns are another common article without which St. Patrick’s Day will never be complete. If you have been fortunate enough to visit Chicago on this day, then you’ll see that the river of Chicago is dyed all green especially for the occasion.
A collection of Shamrock pined to cloth is a must. Some also take the liberty of doing a painting of shamrock on their face. The colors of Irish flag on faces are also a common doing on this day.
3. Dublin, Ireland:
What better place to be on St. Patrick’s Day than in the country of the said Saint himself? The celebrations in Dublin involve four days of dancing and drinking to traditional Irish music. The day pays a beautiful homage to Ireland’s history. To get the full extent of the St. Patrick’s Day experience in Dublin, plan to Visit Trinity Bar Venue, the best sport bar of Dublin on one of the celebratory days.
4. Irish Dance:
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and not knowing Irish dance is like a fish that doesn’t know how to swim. No matter in which part of the world you are, the famous Irish step dancing is a must to do on this day.
5. Traditional Irish Food:
Irish knows their drink well, but they also know their traditional cuisines very well. On this day, people revel with the best of Irish food, and when it comes to the best traditional Irish food in Dublin, no one makes it better than the Gastro Pub Trinity bar Venue. Since St. Patrick’s Day is the official public holiday in Ireland, head to the Temple Bar and celebrate the day in one of the finest sports bar of Dublin, The Trinity Bar Venue, and get the full experience of the day. And if there’s one place in Dublin that serves the best drinks in town, it is this Gastro pub. Just because this day allows all kinds of alcohol doesn’t mean you have to get the bad ones. Get the supreme tasting drinks and turn the day into an unforgettable memory.
