Wed 3/16 – 4-9:00 PM. Come celebrate the eve of St. Patrick’s day with our $5 green sangria specials! Made from a nice white wine, brandy, and green fruits, this will be a refreshing introduction to our St. Patrick’s day green cocktails.
- Blue was the color originally associated with St. Patrick, but green is now favored.
- The first St. Patrick’s Day parade in the American colonies was held in New York City on this day in 1762.
- Patrick’s Day is the traditional day for planting peas, even in the snow!
- Cabbage seeds are often planted today, too, and old-time farmers believed that to make them grow well, you needed to plant them while wearing your nightclothes!
BUT NOW BACK TO FACTS:
Who? St. Patrick was patron saint and national apostle of Ireland and credited with successfully bringing Christianity to Ireland.
For real? Definitely existed but did he really drive the snakes out of Ireland? Probably not, since snakes weren’t native to Ireland.
Brief bio? St. Patrick was born in Britain as Maewyn Succat. At age 16 (around A.D. 400), he was kidnapped from his home on the west coast and carried off to Ireland to become a slave who worked as a shepherd. After six years, he escaped; upon returning home, he received his calling (in a dream) to preach the Gospel. He spent the next 15 or so years in a monastery, preparing for his missionary work. When he became a priest, his name was changed to Patricius, and eventually, Patrick. Although some Christians lived in Ireland at the time, it was Patrick who spread Christianity throughout the land and brought an organized church into existence.
