The origin of St. Patrick’s Day
Saint Patrick’s Day, or Lá Fhéile Pádraig as it’s known in Ireland, has been around since the 17th century. While it’s traditionally a holy day celebrating St. Patrick—and, by the way, it’s “Paddy,” not “Patty”—it has become a cultural celebration of Irish culture as well as green beer, shamrocks and “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” flair.
While some people can be frustrated by the negative stereotypes that St. Patrick’s Day perpetuates, the holiday is celebrated in more countries than any other—imagine that while you’re sipping green beer and enjoying your St. Patrick’s Day flower arrangement in 77084!
St. Patrick likely lived in the 5th century, in Britain. The idea that he drove snakes out of the land is likely a metaphor for religion, since he spent his life evangelizing in Ireland. He actually died on March 17, and the day is marked to honor his devotion to religion.
Today, St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish cultural holiday, celebrating the Irish diaspora around the land. If you’ve ever worn green on March 17, you’ve helped honor a saint. In fact, he is Ireland’s foremost saint, and the Catholic contingent of the country guards his reputation fiercely.
However, that shouldn’t stop you from drinking a green beer or buying a beautiful flower arrangement!
St. Patrick’s Day flower arrangement ideas
How does one celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with flowers and greenery, you might wonder? We have a few ideas:
- Shamrocks: Of course shamrocks are a great and traditional way to tip one’s hat to the Irish, and in fact St. Patrick is reputed to have used it as a nod to the holy trinity in Catholicism.
- Green, white and orange flowers: The Irish flag is green, white and orange, so why not choose an arrangement in those colors? Lilies and greenery can be a fabulous combination.
- Go green: If you prefer a monochromatic arrangement, we love the look of green hydrangeas set against darker foliage.
- Green and white: Finally, don’t forget the statement that simple green and white arrangements can make. They’re elegant, beautiful and will dress up your home, office or other space.
