St. Patrick’s Day Small Bite Recipes
The little green leprechauns have found the gold! It’s St. Patty’s Day time. Invite your friends over for some grub and green beer, and enjoy this time of celebration this springtime occasion.
Although the holiday is typically known for its green beer, leprechauns, and pots of gold, it is traditionally celebrated as a festival of Saint Patrick. Saint Patrick was a Roman-British citizen who was kidnapped by Irish raiders and imprisoned in Ireland for six years. During his time imprisoned, he found God, and once he was able to flee Ireland and return home, he quickly was called back to Ireland. He lived his life sharing the love of God with those who kidnapped him, and was said to have died on March 17th.
The tradition introduced people to wearing green to represent Ireland, and celebrate the life of Saint Patrick with the ministry tool of the shamrock that he used to share about the Holy Trinity. Today people wear the green to share their Irish heritage, chase after shamrocks for good luck, and share folklore of leprechauns. However you celebrate, we thought we’d share with you some delicious recipes to try!
