When is St. Patrick’s Day? March 17th. What is St. Patrick’s Day? It is a day that celebrates the arrival of the Christian church in Ireland as well as Ireland as a country. I am a Christian and part Irish and therefore, I love this holiday. Really, I love all holidays, but this one includes my favorite color – green and celebrates part of my heritage which makes it even more fun. I can’t wait to celebrate this year with Hampton and teach him a few traditions I grew up with.
Here are a few ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your kiddos:
– Wear green so you don’t get pinched
-Leave your shoes outside your bedroom door the night before so the leprechauns can fill them with candy.
-Drink a green Shamrock Shake from McDonalds
-Look for a lucky 4 leaf clover.
-Go to a parade.
-Bake some (green) M&M cookies and add green food coloring to make them extra lucky.
