So I’m 1/2 Irish – My last name is Patterson and my family began with 3 Irish brothers from Limerick, Ireland who hopped on a boat headed to USA to the New York Harbor sometime ago. Somehow these Irish lads wound-up in Ohio and South Carolina and then my great-great-great grandpa made his way to the North Georgia Mountains. I’m a 4 generation North Georgian and our Irish roots are quite strong so this qualifies me to giving great advice for St. Paddy’s Day Celebrations…North Georgia style of course.
In researching for this historical celebration of the Roman Catholic Ireland’s Patron Saint Patrick – I found an amazing site called – www.thriftyjinxy.com who has everything and then some for “The Perfect St. Paddy’s Day” Celebration. My favorite suggestions on this site are the food recipes – Talk about lucky…this site includes recipes for Chocolate baked Guinness Donuts with Irish Cream Glaze to Mini Shepherd’s Pies in Muffin Tins. Do you have kids? Well, they also include a recipe for Green Shamrock Gum-drops! Yes indeed – them Irish eyes will be smilin’ for sure! They even have coloring sheets to entertain the little lads & lass’ and printable treat bags and adult games as well.
My second favorite recommendation from thriftyjinxy.com is the party music. No party is complete without some festive Irish music is playing – like Beautiful Day by U2 & Patrick’s Days by Highland Rovers Band. Download the singles from Itunes or buy them from Amazon.com Sounds rather lucky huh.
So if you decide to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day and want to add some flavor to make your friends “green with envy” use some of these ideas- and let us know how it goes.
