Did you know that blue was the original color for St. Patrick’s Day? Well, me neither. At first, it was associated with Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Then, eventually green became associated with the holiday due to the greenness of the Irish landscape & the missionary’s usage of the three leaf clover to explain the Trinity (which later turn into a symbol of Irish Catholic nationalism). So, wearing green became a tradition on St. Patrick’s Day and later a political statement after the United Irish Uprising of 1798. And here in the U.S. , the color green is a way for some Americans to identify with their Irish roots. It’s really interesting the little things you’ll find about your favorite holidays.
Oh, before I go, here’s a little reminder to all my Waco Bohemians who plan to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this Saturday, March 17 : DON’T FORGET that the following events are happening at a local bar/club near you.
