St. Patrick's Day

Posted by Mama Kandy Kane on 3/15/2017 to Holidays
What began as a religious feast day in the 17th century has evolved into a variety of festivals across the world celebrating Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, and a whole lot of green.The shamrock, which was also called the “seamroy” by the Celts, was a sacred plant in ancient Ireland because it symbolized the rebirth of spring.  The shamrock had become a symbol of  Irish . As the English began to seize Irish land and make laws against the use of the Irish language and the practice of Catholicism many Irish began to wear the shamrock as a symbol of their pride in their heritage and their displeasure with English rule. Each year thousands of Irish Americans gather with their loved ones on St. Patrick’s Day to share a “traditional” meal of corned beef and cabbage. Then you also hear about leprechauns  from Celtic belief in fairies, tiny men and women who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil. In Celtic folktales leprechauns were cranky responsible for mending the shoes of the other fairies. Though only minor figures in Celtic folklore leprechauns were known for their trickery  which they often used to protect their treasure. Many people wear an item of green clothing on the day. Parties featuring Irish food and drinks that are dyed in green food color are part of this celebration. WINTERLANDINC.COM has many different green ornaments and lights that would add a great green vibe to any celebration.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it! college education http://studypoints.eu/

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone! health advice http://healthhints.eu
