St. Patrick's Day Drinks

We continue with the great St. Patrick's Day Drinks here. If you haven't seen the others, then return to this page...

You don't have to be Irish to partake in a little wearing o' the green or a tasty Irish beverage. But, you should at least know a little bit about why you are drinking green beer and wearing a 'Kiss Me I'm Irish pin'!

It all began in 385 AD with a 16-year-old named Maewyn. This unfortunate lad was forced into slavery, but also managed to become much more religious. After 6 years of slavery, he escaped, fled to a monastery, and took on a new Christian name - Patrick.

Once his studies at the monastery ended, the newly named Patrick headed to Ireland in the hopes helping Pagans convert to Christianity. He traveled the country for the next 30 years, and during that time worked to convert natives and set up monasteries.

Patrick died on March 17, 461, but his memory lived on because he was proclaimed a saint.

You might wonder how such a religious man came to be honored by such a raucous, drinking-filled holiday. It happened slowly, but surely. And, believe it or not, it has been celebrated more in the USA than in Ireland.

The United States actually hosted the holiday's very first parade in 1762 in New York City. The parade was used to allow soldiers and their heritage to reconnect. As the number of Irish immigrants grew, so did the parade and the celebration.

Today, St. Patrick's Day is a day for those who are Irish, and those who are not, to celebrate their heritage by wearing green, drinking green beer and other Irish drinks, and partying their shamrocks off!
