St. Patrick’s Day is quickly approaching, so it’s time to figure out your plans for decorating. Since St. Patrick’s Day will occur on a Saturday this year, you’ll probably want to pull out all the stops.
From themed cocktails to a DIY St. Patrick’s Day wreath, there’s so much you can do with your decor — and it doesn’t just have to involve green streamers. Each of these St. Patrick’s Day wreaths will radiate Irish pride from your wall, while adding a cute festive feel to your home as well.
Of course, St. Patrick’s Day isn’t just about drinking special green drinks or wearing “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” T-shirts. In fact, the Irish holiday dates back to the 17th century, when you can be sure that nobody was wearing a kitschy T-shirt.
It’s an exciting time for anyone with Irish heritage, which is a lot of people in the U.S. In fact, according to the Census, over seven times as many Irish people live in the U.S. than in Ireland. You probably think of St. Patrick’s Day as an Irish holiday, but it very well could be considered a U.S. holiday at this point.
That gives you all the more reason to celebrate this year, whether you’re technically Irish or not.
The celebration of Saint Patrick honors the Irish priest who is credted with bringing Christianity to Ireland. What started as a feast day for the Catholic Church eventually became a holiday known for involving leprechaun bar crawls and innumerable pints of Guinness.
