St Patrick’s Day Recipes!
Seeing as tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd share some delicious recipes I've found for any celebration you may have in mind! A little history tidbit first though. St. Patrick's Day is a holiday in which St. Patrick, one of the most commonly recognized patron saints of Ireland, is honored every year in remembrance of his death, which was March 17th, 461. Also, the shamrocks became a recognized symbol of St. Patrick because he commonly used the plant to explain the Holy Trinity during his nearly 30 year history of teaching Christianity across Ireland. And originally, the color associated with St. Patrick's Day was blue, however, that began to shift (as early as the 17th century) to the green color we associate with it now. So wear some green, celebrate, and eat some delicious Irish fare! Happy celebrating readers!
