Wear a bit – O – the Green
Kiss the Blarney stone and look for a 4 leaf Clover..

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is one of Christianity’s most widely known figures. Although he is celebrated, his life remains somewhat of a mystery. Many of the stories traditionally associated with St. Patrick, including the famous account of his banishing all the snakes from Ireland, are false, the products of hundreds of years of exaggerated storytelling.

You can learn more about St. Patrick on The History Channel. There is also a video clip to find out the truth behind the mysterious Saint, and learn more about why this day is celebrated!

If you are having a party to celebrate the Irish in you, or the luck of the Irish…we have some fun party hats, blinking shamrock beads, and green clover decorations in our online party store.

Plan your menu with Irish favorites: make some cabbage and corned beef, and some boiled potatoes for luck..Irish soda bread too! Have some green drinks, beer, or punch and have a few Irish song CD”S playing..maybe an Irish ballad.

 

 

Try potato art…kids will love it!

Cut a potato in half..peeled first..and carve a decoration in the flat side with a sharp carving tool..dip the carved part in finger paint spread out on a flat dish, and stamp the design on paper..Have a cool art contest.
Make up a tale of the tiny weefolk, and see who can add on where you leave off, for a huge tale…keep the story going till you get a real crazy finish.

If you want to make your own invitations, make a pot of gold..and a rainbow on the front…open the card, and let the guests know where you live at the end of the rainbow, and come have some Irish fun…write the address, date and time…and tell them to wear green…for good luck..
