Celebrations of St. Patrick’s day occur all over the world on March 17th and fancy dress clothing themed party’s are held in streets that get closed off and at various venues everywhere. Of course, Ireland is the centre of attraction as this is an official Irish holiday but with a strong population of Irish people in countries such as Canada, America, Australia and England, the parties are going on around the globe.
Pictures of party celebrations on Saint Patrick’s day are posted all over the Internet each and every year and for those living in London, England, Trafalgar Square is the place to be. Traditional Irish clothing is usually worn by most at these celebrations and drinks such as Guinness, Irish cream and whiskey are always flowing. This traditional celebration is in fact supposed to be a religious acknowledgement but seems to have turned into thousands of worldwide mindless drunken party events!
Gifts are exchanged amongst the more dedicated in celebrating this annual day, lyrics to specially written songs are sung out around pubs and clubs and traditional Irish food is shared at many events. In Ireland itself it is an official public holiday and the major cities close off streets in cities like Dublin and Cork just to name a few. So if you are usually looking for a good excuse to throw a party complete with a theme that you can dress up in fancy clothes, eat different foods and drink lots of Irish drinks then the celebration of St. Patrick’s day may be right up your alley. Oh, and if you throw a party, be sure to mail us some pictures!
