St Patrick’s Day 2020

The 17th March is the day the world turns green for St Patrick’s Day. Yes, as well as being a national holiday in Ireland, many other countries around the world also celebrate as there are so many Irish migrants living around the globe.

St. Patrick’s Day tends to be celebrated with:

  • Food
  • Drink
  • Parades
  • The Colour Green
  • Shamrocks
  • Leprechauns
  • Music
  • Mass

Giving gifts on St Patrick’s Day is also a popular thing to do, although these tend to be smaller tokens of luck or thanks. Apparently St Patrick himself was well known as a gift giver, and didn’t expect anything in return.

With so many people of Irish Heritage now living overseas we found ourselves receiving requests for Irish Food Hampers to delivered to the UK and further afield to Europe and America. This isn’t a problem for us as we already do this on a daily basis!
