What is one holiday where everyone sheds their true identity and takes on a new persona? No… it’s not Halloween. On St. Patrick’s Day you are either Irish or “Irish-for-the-day.” But don’t worry not even St. Patrick himself was a true Irishman! Here is our guide to celebrate this holiday to the fullest.
Anywhere and everywhere you go you are swarmed in a sea of green. Shirts, hats, scarves… No stone is left “unpainted” in this colour. HipHop Froggy Buddy is particularly fond of this holiday because he’s prepared everyday of the year! Green pancakes are especially fun on this day… If you are cooking, adding a couple drops of green food colouring should do the trick!
Corned beef and cabbage has always been hailed as a “traditional Irish dish” but I am going to let you in on another little secret… this dish was actually created by Irish immigrants in America. If you really want a classic dish why not try some Irish soda bread? Or maybe some Irish stew?
What to wear?
A traditional Irish sweater will keep you warm, cozy and not to mention very stylish. We have the perfect matching look for your doll or stuffed animal! Our adorable Whatzupwiththat! Bearwear knit sweater comes in white, baby blue, red, pink and cream. Sized to fit 13″ to 18″ toys, this sweater is easy to customize for your toy or to wear as is! Why not embroider a big green shamrock on the front?
Fun Irish Sayings
There are some great sayings out there for St. Patrick’s Day. Here are a few of our favourites:
“May the luck of the Irish be with you”
“Keep calm and shamrock on”
“A best friend is like a four-leaf clover, hard to find but lucky to have”
These sayings are great for embroidering on an Easy As 1-2-3 Pillow! or maybe on one of our very green Buddies like Dino Dinosaur Buddy, or Shel Turtle buddy, because everyone comes out of their shell on St. Patrick’s Day!
And trust us you can kiss these buddies even if you are not Irish!
Sláinte to the luck of the Irish!
