Most people know that Saint Patrick’s Day is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461) and that the day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. For some, Saint Patrick’s Day is also a holiday that celebrates Irish culture.
On March 17th, Saint Patrick’s Day, people from all over the world will be celebrating by wearing green and making a trip to the local Irish pub for green beer and corned beef with cabbage.
Where did the shamrocks and wearing of green come from? In Irish folklore, the shamrock (a small three-leaved green plant) was one of Saint Patrick’s teaching methods to explain the Christian doctrine of the Trinity to the Irish people.
What’s up with the partying? In Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Day is an official holiday with parades and festivals. It is rumored that Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day.
So whether you celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day as a religious holiday or to celebrate all that is Irish, I'm sure you will find something in our new line of Saint Patrick’s Day eCards to answer your needs.
From all of us at CorpNote, we hope you have a wonderful Saint Patrick’s Day!
