Decorate your St. Paddy's Day party with emerald green flowers!
Do you know why people pinch you for not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day? We wear green to symbolize the Irish identity and to make up for the past when they could have been hanged for wearing green or speaking Gaelic. When Ireland was under English rule, Irish people were not allowed to wear the color green, as the color represented Ireland. Now, everyone is "Irish" for the day and we wear green in support.
Have a St. Paddy's Day bouquet delivered to celebrate the luck of the Irish
St. Patricks Day flowers are a great way to celebrate the holiday, along with the corned beef and cabbage of course! Vibrant arrangements of green flowers are the perfect St Patricks Day decorations. Although it might be hard to find shamrock or a four-leaf clover this St Paddys Day, an arrangement of green orchids or carnations tied with a green ribbon will lend the same festive spirit to your St. Patrick's Day party.
Many forget that today is a religious observance. It has become the norm, to wear foam hats in the shape of shamrock, "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" buttons, to dance all-night to Irish music (fueled by copious amounts of green beer!). Fr. Vincent Twomey, an Irish Catholic priest, expressed concern about the secularisation of St Patrick's Day. He said, "It is time to reclaim St Patrick's Day as a church festival." He questioned the need for "mindless alcohol-fuelled revelry" and concluded that "it is time to bring the piety and the fun together."
We wish the luck of the Irish to you all and that you discover a leprechaun and a pot-of-gold at the end of a rainbow! Here is an Irish blessing just for you...
