6 St. Patrick’s Day Ideas:
|Share The Story Of The Leprechaun
We see Leprechauns as a symbol that represents the Irish and St. Patrick’s Day, but why? According to folklore, Leprechauns are known for their shenanigans and were paid gold coins to mend the shoes of Irish fairies. Tales describe them as little old bearded men who enjoyed trickery to keep from being captured and forced to give away their pot of gold coins.
|Arrange A Treasure Hunt
Legend says that the Leprechaun’s pot of gold coins is hidden deep in the forest at the end of a rainbow. Create your own fun game of exploration with a map and clues along the way to find a pot of chocolate-covered coins or the real deal if you are feeling extra generous.
|Four Leaf Clovers
Another delightful storied fable is that you will be extremely lucky if you unearth a clover with four leaves instead of three, with each one representing either hope, faith, love, or happiness. Consider planting your own clovers inside or out, and keep watch for that special version of a shamrock to emerge.
|Get Your Green On
The color of the day represents the Irish flag, the country of Ireland also known as the “Emerald Isle,” and the renewed spring season. Folklore also says that Leprechauns would pinch any green abstainers, and the tradition still stands today for those breaking the rules. Go full out green or add a subtle hint to your attire to stay pinch-free.
|Bring On The Craft Making
Make your own Irish-themed hats, jewelry, table, and room decor. Get inspired by the culture and fantasy of the mythical storytelling adventures from Irish history.
|Good Eats, Drinks, And Tunes
Enjoy the spirit of the Irish and set your table with green libations, corned beef, and cabbage with yummy potatoes, and add to the ambiance with festive Celtic music that will make you kick up your feet and dance.
