Celtic Theme Celebrations for March 17, St. Patrick's Day

Celtic art, history and Irish themes are popular all year long, but in mid-March, they become the focal point for most restaurants and pubs in North America, Austrialia and Ireland. In Ireland, St. Patrick's day is a religious holiday, and only recently were pubs and bars in Ireland allowed to be open to serve alcoholic beverages on March 17 .

Luck of the Irish blessingIn the US and Canada, you'll find pubs filled with celebrants quaffing pints of Irish ale, Irish meals and even green beer. Ladies will wear green flowers, corsages, pins and badges.

Decorations of live shamrocks in bunches and small pots will be in homes and restaurants and shops will sell cards, decorations and more to help you celebrate.

March 17 is a BIG DEAL at pubs and restaurants across the USA; New York and Boston hold spectacular parades to celebrate St. Patrick's Day - not without some controversy and plenty of merriment.

FLAG The Irish flag is divided into 3 equal panels, its colors representing the diversity and heritage of the people of Ireland, and their struggle for unity and peace.
