When is St. Patrick’s Day?
Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural celebration held on the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, patron saint of Ireland.
March 17th commemorates Saint Patrick and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.
The Real Meaning of St. Patrick’s Day
These days, St. Patrick’s Day is all about wearing green, bling, and shamrocks. Get together, drink some green beverages and make fun of anyone who isn’t wearing green! But really, the day commemorates the patron saint, Saint Patrick. Discover information about him here!
Although he started as originally from Roman Britain, he was captured by Irish pirates. He lived with them and devoted himself to religion. He later traveled through Ireland, trying to spread the word to those across the country. He used a shamrock to teach valuable lessons about Christianity. He even chased away all of the snakes in Ireland! St. Patrick’s Day celebrates his work and it celebrates Irish heritage, and if you want a great outfit to celebrate the patron saint, then you can step into his shoes at Dallas Vintage Shop!
St. Patrick’s Day Costumes
St. Patrick’s Day gives everyone a good excuse to go green! Wear green St. Patrick’s Day outfits, or go all-out with a leprechaun costume. Make sure to indulge in green treats and beverages too.
Leprechaun Costumes are very popular on St. Patrick’s Day. You can dress them up in fancy attire and get a great cane, or just add a giant green hat to almost any outfit. To really sell the outfit, we recommend dancing a little jig!
All That Glitters is Gold
This year, gold is in! Add sparkle and pizzaz to any outfit with a gold suit. Instead of dressing up as a Leprechaun, be what everyone really wants and dress up as that pot of gold!
