I read somewhere that originally the color blue was associated with Saint Patrick. He used the three leafed shamrock lớn explain the Holy Trinity khổng lồ non-believers. Eventually over time, shamrocks & the color green became synonymous with the Irish holiday.


To be honest, I’m not really sure who St. Patrick was or what we’re supposed to celebrate. But any day that promotes people to be happy, joyous, & encourages gatherings is fine by me.
When I was younger, arriving to lớn school without wearing green was unacceptable. Even wearing the tiniest shamrock sticker could save you in the playground. St. Patrick’s Day was basically a day of pinching, devouring green sugar cookies, và searching for four-leafed clovers during recess.
Then as soon as you hit 21, this day becomes associated with corned beef, cabbage, and heavy drinking; Its all about the bar/pub crawls và the all day happy hours.

Rather than drinking pints of alcohol, I’ll be partaking in the consumption of a lot of green sugar. I’ll be taking these delicious little Green Velvet Donuts to lớn parties this weekend. This is simply a red velvet cake that has been dyed green.

When I lived in Chicago, I was so eager to lớn see the Chicago River dyed green for this holiday. Its funny how the ordinary can become so extraordinary with just a little change of color.
