St Patrick’s Day in the US is celebrated on March 17th 2014 this year!

Our friends from Ireland smile and laugh at our behavior. We all dress up in some sort of “Green” outfits, drink green beer, eat green food, and have green deserts.

So where did this “green” come from? Most people have no idea, they think it is because of the Shamrock, or because of the Leprechauns or it is an “Irish Tradition”.

Well would you believe it those who said “Irish Tradition” are half right. As most of you know Ireland has basically two parts and mostly they two section are divided based on Religion. There are the Protestants and then there are the Catholics.

The Protestants have been identified with the color of “Orange” and the Catholics have been identified with the color of “Green” so if you are in Ireland it becomes very clear on St Patrick’s Day who is in which camp. Ironically this is very divisive in my opinion.

Anyway there are other explanations you might find, but this one aspect is clear: in the United States the color “Green” represents St. Patrick’s Day and not the color of “Orange”

Even though St Patrick’s Day is on Monday, many people will have parties starting on Friday throughout the weekend.  As far as most “Yanks” are concerned St Patrick’s Day is a” Drinking Holiday”, unlike our friends in Ireland think it is a” Family Holiday” and they get together and reminisce about their own family’s history.

  Here is an older Blog Post I wrote about St Patrick’s Day Check it out :

I will close with an old Irish Toast: When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let’s get drunk, and go to heaven!
