Shenanigans and Shamrocks: Celebrating Irish Heritage!

March 13, 2024 by Emily Moore
  • What do you call a fake stone in Ireland? A sham-rock!
  • What do you call an Irish chef who bounces off walls? Rick O’Shea.

Saint Patrick’s Day, observed annually on March 17, holds deep roots in Irish history and culture. Originally a religious feast day honoring Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland, the occasion has evolved into a global celebration of all things Irish. It’s a day when the “luck of the Irish” comes alive, the shamrock is ubiquitously displayed, and everyone can be Irish for a day.

North Americans embrace St. Patty’s Day with gusto, often celebrating with a pint of Guinness, a shot of Irish whiskey, or some other expression of boozy enthusiasm. But the holiday also caters to family fun! Children wear green clothing to avoid being pinched and set leprechaun traps, hoping to catch the elusive, mischievous creatures. And many cities host exuberant parades with elaborate floats, traditional Celtic music, and lively Irish dancers.

Whatever your family customs may be, if you’d like to add some Irish flair to your Saint Patrick’s Day menu, we’ve got suggestions! Vegan Corny “Beef” Hash or Emerald Isle Salad + Shamrock Ranch Dressing might just become family favorites.

Erin, go, Bragh!” – let the spirit and shenanigans of Saint Patrick’s Day unfold!
