Growing up in the Caribbean I did not hear a lot about St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. However, as time passed, and the world became truly a “global village”, island restaurants and hotels promoted more “St. Patty’s Day” themed events. Now living in Canada, I am surrounded and truly fascinated by food, drink, decor and types of events that have us all seeing green!
The origins of St. Patrick’s Day
Beginning as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day has now become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing and special foods. It is held on March 17th every year which is the traditional death date of Saint Patrick ( c. AD 385–461).
