Kiss Me, I’m Irish
St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching on March 17. An estimated $4.4 billion was to be spent by Americans alone on St. Patrick’s Day in 2016. It’s an excellent opportunity to design and sell custom merchandise.
Who is St. Patrick?
St. Patrick is a patron saint of Ireland. Self-proclaimed to be kidnapped by Irish pirates in his youth, he later served as a bishop in Ireland. One folk story claims he drove the snakes out of Ireland.
St. Patrick’s Day
Today, St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration in the Irish diaspora and beyond. Traditions include wearing green, parades around major metropolitan areas, and drinking a lot of Guinness. Everyone, Irish or not, can use a bit of custom green for 2017’s celebration.
- Color: Green
- Symbols: Shamrocks, leprechauns
- Other name: St. Paddy’s Day
