Top St. Patrick’s Day Activity Ideas

St. Paddy’s Day, also known as St, Patrick’s Day is probably one of the biggest social gatherings celebrated in the US. Back in Ireland, this day was celebrated humbly unlike how it is now where it’s more pronounced and grandeur.


St. Patrick's Day was commemorated in memory of St. Patrick’s death. He passed on March 17th around 461 AD. Families in Ireland typically spend the day with mass, offering prayers and after, having a simple feast at home.

Conjure A Leprechaun In Your Own Garden

Leprechauns or the leipreachán to the Irish are usually associated with St. Patrick's Day along with shamrocks. Leprechauns come from Irish folklore and are always seen as mischievous little creatures. They are also shown as shoemakers and would always hide a pot of gold. According to the folklore, if a leprechaun is caught by a human, it can grant them three wishes in exchange for setting it free.

You can start decorating a terracotta pot with little leprechaun faces and then add soil and shamrocks on it. You can then place the pot in a spot where it’s always sunny and then sit back to watch the “hair” grow on the leprechaun.
