Getting Lucky for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, so it’s time to don some green, lucky vibes, and a smile. You don’t always have to wear green for St. Patrick’s day, green is so last season. And a little pinch never hurt anyone.

St. Patrick or the Feast of Saint Patrick’s day is celebrated on March 17th, the day of St. Patrick’s death. It is an observed holiday, was originally a feast day but gradually became a celebration of Irish culture. St. Patrick’s day is a national holiday in Northern Ireland, where it is celebrated as a holy feast day, parade, and maybe going to catholic mass.

Dress up the month of March with some four leaf clovers, Celtic knots, and other Irish symbolism for a little extra luck.

Luck of the Irish

Somehow, being Irish is the epitome of luck. It wouldn’t seem to stem from Ireland, as Ireland has sustained a great deal of hardship over the centuries. It may refer to the amount of luck to be had by the Irish when they relocated to America. Their biggest advantage over the natives was their ability to speak English. Speaking English paved the way for the Irish as they joined political assemblies; they could voice their opinions and make contributions to society in a way that made them appear ‘lucky’. Nearly everything lucky is associated with the Irish or the color green; clovers, leprechauns, St. Patrick’s Day, Claddagh rings, horseshoes, rainbows, pots of gold, itchy palms, wishbones, wishing wells, etc. Personally, I really enjoy the Claddagh ring. It’s a really fantastic way to thwart bad luck AND declare marital status. Here’s a quick guide to wearing a Claddagh ring. Consider purchasing a Claddagh ring to keep away bad luck woes permanently!
