There is just something so homey about a good ol’ Irish dinner. Most often than not they are simple meat and potatoes hearty meals that are packed with flavor and love. Add some sweet treats to the mix and you have yourself a party or just a festive Saint Patrick’s Day Meals the whole family will love!
When I was younger St Patrick’s day was about the pub crawl and whoever started seeing green little men first lost. Nowadays it is about the food and doing crafts with my kids.
One thing we like to do is incorporate fun lessons into holidays. How did the holiday start and what is the importance of it? I believe as moms it is our job to expose our kids to many different cultures and ways of life so that they can learn to appreciate everyone’s differences and understand that we all have something special to bring to the table and share with the world.
Fun Facts About Saint Patrick’s Day
St Patrick is a real person, but he is not Irish he is British. He ended up in Ireland when he was kidnapped and sold into slavery. He escaped slavery after several years and went back to Britain. However, something told him to go back to Ireland as a missionary and spread the word of God.
After he passed away, he was named the patron saint of Ireland for bringing Christianity to the preciously pagan region.
Over the years, once the Irish started migrating to the United States, they started gaining major political popularity in big cities and the parades and festivities just grow. More and more people caught on and participated in the celebration.
Now we have a fun day of Irish green called St Patrick’s Day with plenty of food and drinks.
