St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! It’s a seasonal favourite for many reasons – the merriment, the green décor, and the tasty treats. Whether you’re truly Irish or just Irish for the day, it’s a celebration full of fun for everyone.
In the spirit of the holiday, we’re shining a spotlight on the Buddies that have a special connection to the occasion – whether it be their inherently lucky nature or stunning green skin. Read on to find out more about them!
Elford Elephant Buddy
Trunks up for this guy! Elford Elephant Buddy is one of the first Buddies that comes to mind when we think about good fortune. Elephants symbolize power, wisdom, strength and good luck.
Many believe that an elephant’s trunk should be facing upwards to represent prosperity, good luck and success – just like Elford’s! Friends Ellie Elephant Buddy and Elliott Elephant Buddy are just as fortunate, too. Grey, pink or blue – choose the lucky elephant that speaks to you!
Add some St. Paddy’s themed embroidery to their round bellies to help celebrate – don’t forget the green thread! Here are some messages we’ll be using this year:
- A good friend is like a four-leaf clover; hard to find and lucky to have
- Wishing you a pot of gold and all the joy your heart can hold
- Cutest clover in the patch
- May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door
- Keep calm and dance with the leprechauns
Sweetie Piggy Pal Buddy
This one might surprise you – pigs are another celebrated symbol of good luck! Ever wondered where the tradition of the piggybank started? Pigs are thought to attract money and protect wealth.
Standing at 16” tall with a soft pink coat and curly tail, Sweetie Piggy Pal Buddy is ready to celebrate!
In addition to some of the fun messages we shared above, why not try your hand at designing some traditional St. Patrick’s Day symbols on Sweetie’s belly? Four-leaf clovers, leprechauns, green hearts and overflowing pots of gold are some holiday favourites.
HipHop Froggy Buddy
Last but not least, we can’t forget about HipHop Froggy Buddy. In some ancient cultures, frogs were thought to be a sign of good fortune due to their association with rain and bountiful crops. With a stunning emerald exterior, HipHop Froggy Buddy is ready to celebrate St. Paddy’s year-round!
Embroider a fun holiday-themed message or symbol on his plush cream belly to celebrate on March 17, or to simply remind you to live life to the fullest! One of our favourites is “Every journey begins with a single hop.”
