Discovering Saint Patrick’s Day
My English teacher is an Irishmen. A great teacher who loves his country. He has introduced me to this festivity: Saint Patrick’s Day. This special day is celebrated moreover in the countries where Irish people went to find a better future for themselves and their families. Nowadays, in Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated as a way to present their Irish culture. In ancient times it was a religious festivity and was part of the liturgical calendar.
As a non-Irish person, I like how St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated around the world and how it has become a day for reclaiming everything Irish. It is true that the symbology may not be the real representation of the Irish people but hey, I love it!
In my country, we represent luck with a four leave clover. Surprisingly, I’ve found out that Irish people prefer a shamrock, a small three leaves clover which has become the non-official symbol of Ireland and luck. I have to admit that green is my favourite colour. Nevertheless, could you imagine a better place to lay in the sun than a field full of shamrocks! Peaceful and lucky.
Luck for all
In order to understand the meaning of all those Irish symbols, I have designed a Scrapbooking paper collection to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with you. The designs include shamrocks, Leprechaun hats, coins and horseshoes, some of the typical symbols of luck. It’s impossible not to be happy and lucky with all these treasures.
What do you think? Isn’t it nice?
Whether you’re Irish or not take a look at this collection in my Etsy shop. There’s also a coordinated sticker pack available in my shop. I will show it shortly, for sure before this lucky day arrives.
Have a nice weekend!
