What is St Patrick’s Day

Every March 17, countries around the world celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in observance of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland credited for bringing

Christianity to the country.

Initially a religious feast day in the 17th century, St. Patrick’s Day has evolved into a day of celebrating Irish culture with parades, music, dancing, special foods, and of course, a lot of green.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, here are a few interesting St. Patrick’s Day facts!

  • Saint Patrick didn’t wear green. His color was “Saint Patrick’s blue.” The color green became associated with St. Patrick’s Day after it was linked to the Irish independence movement in the late 18th century.
  • Despite his Irish notoriety, Saint Patrick was British. He was born to Roman parents in Scotland or Wales in the late fourth century.
  • According to Irish legend, Saint Patrick used the shamrock as a metaphor for the Holy Trinity when he was first introducing Christianity to Ireland.
  • Saint Patrick is credited for driving the snakes out of Ireland, but according to the fossil record, Ireland has never been home to snakes as it was too cold to host reptiles during the Ice Age. The surrounding seas have kept snakes out since.
  • There isn’t any corn in the traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef and cabbage. The name is a reference to the large grains of salt historically used to cure meats, which were also known as “corns.”
  • Saint Patrick was born “Maewyn Succat” but changed his name to “Patricius” after becoming a priest.
  • Irish immigrants began observing St. Patrick’s Day in Boston in 1737 and the first St. Patrick’s Day parade in America was held in New York City in 1766.
  • In Chicago, the Plumbers Local 110 union dyes the river Kelly green. The dye lasts for around five hours.
  • On or around St. Patrick’s Day, the Irish taoiseach, or prime minister, presents the U.S. president with a crystal bowl of live shamrocks as a symbol of the close ties between the two countries.

Leprechaun Gnome Treats

A fun St. Patrick’s Day dessert recipe for kids and adults alike!

Course Dessert Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c Orange Candy Melts
  • 1/2 c Light Green Candy Melts
  • Leprechaun Sprinkles
  • 2 tbsp Orange Sugar Sprinkles
  • 2 tbsp Orange Confetti Sprinkles
  • 2 tbsp Green Sugar Sprinkles
  • 2 tbsp Green Jimmies Sprinkles
  • 6 Jumbo Marshmallows
  • 6 Green Sixlets Candies
  • 6 Sugar Ice Cream Cones

Instructions

  • Heat the green candy melts in a heat safe glass bowl, per directions on bag. (I heat for 1 minute at 50% power, stir, and then heat for an additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Stir very well, as the majority of the candy will melt once stirred. If not, you can heat an additional 15 seconds)
  • Dip the pointy end of the sugar cones into the melted green candy, and then immediately dip in either green sugar or jimmies sprinkles.
  • Using a spoon, spread the green candy around the other end of the cone, approximately 1” up the cone.
  • Immediately dip, or sprinkle the Lucky Leprechaun Sprinkle Mix onto the green candy. The green candy hardens quickly, so work quickly, or do the front first and then the back side of the cone. Place each dipped cone on parchment paper to set for approximately 1-2 minutes.
  • Stuff a jumbo marshmallow into each cone. If you are having a hard time getting them to fit inside, using the handle of a spoon, push the sides until they fit into the cone.
  • Heat the orange candy melts, following the same heating instructions in step 1.
  • Using a spoon, spread the melted orange candy onto the marshmallow in the shape of a beard, leaving just enough of the marshmallow uncovered to be the face.
  • Immediately sprinkle orange sugar sprinkles, and then orange confetti sprinkles onto the melted candy. Again, the candy hardens quickly, so add the sprinkles quickly, or work in sections.
  • Reheat any of the remaining green candy melts in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds at 50% power.
  • Using a sharp pairing knife, make a small hole for the nose.
  • Dip the green Sixlets into the melted green candy, and then immediately place in the nose hole. Hold for a few seconds until it sets, so that the candy doesn’t fall out.

Irish Breakfast

Start your day off with this Irish breakfast — you’ll never want cold cereal again.

You can face anything after this hearty breakfast of eggs, mushrooms, and tomatoes fried with bacon and butter.

Slices of Irish soda bread are grilled in the skillet and served on the side. It’s essential that you serve this breakfast with sweet, milky tea.

Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 6 thick slices bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 small tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 ½ cups whole mushrooms
  • 4 slices prepared soda bread

Directions

  1. Lay bacon slices in a single layer in a large skillet. Fry over medium heat until starting to brown. Fry on both sides. Remove from the pan, but save the grease.

  2. Add butter to the skillet and melt. Crack eggs into the pan, being careful not to break the yolks. Place tomato slices, mushrooms, and bread into the skillet, keeping everything separate. Fry gently, stirring mushrooms and tomatoes occasionally. Flip bread to brown on both sides.

  3. When egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny, dish half of everything onto each of two warmed plates and serve immediately.

Recipe Tip

To be really authentic, buy back bacon — it’s much meatier than the belly bacon more common in America.
