St. Patrick's Day Celebrations

St. Patrick's day is a few days away and this Irish girl is already thinking about how to celebrate!  Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick's Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.  

Have you ever wondered why pinching someone who is not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day became a tradition?  Revelers thought wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began pinching those who didn't wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers!  Now a days, it's probably best to keep your pinching fingers to yourself, but I still like the idea of wearing green anyway to show my Irish pride!    

What are your St. Patrick's Day traditions?  Do you have any great recipes to share?  My mom always made the best corned beef and cabbage dinner on St. Patrick's Day when I was young!  I love the scent of the red cider vinegar brewing in the dutch oven! She typically served it with small red potatoes and green cabbage and always had a helpful serving of spicy mustard and vinegaron the side!  

I recently created a new Pinterest board to get some St. Patrick's Day inspiration!  You can check it out here!  I've also rounded up some of my favorite St. Patrick's Day inspired fashion looks below!  I hope you enjoy it!
