Dress in the colours of the Emerald Isle Saint Patrick’s Day is a great Canadian tradition, a joyous celebration of Irish culture and music. Crowds around the country gather in pubs to watch parades of floats and green-clad marching bands, or if they’re lucky, they stand on the sidewalks of bigger cities to watch in real time. Whether you’re Irish by birth or for just one day a year, this festival marking the beginning of spring deserves to be celebrated with enthusiasm. The first step in your preparations is to wear the obligatory touch of green. Adding a shamrock to your outfit gives a perfect finishing touch. The emblem of Ireland, this lucky charm will bring you good fortune all day long. Three other accessories are essen- tial on March 17: a green wig, shamrock socks, and a leprechaun hat trimmed with a green satin ribbon. Give the inside of your home an Irish look by decorating beds and sofas with green cushions, and play traditional Irish folk music to create just the right atmosphere. Irish pubs are a great source of inspiration for decorating ideas: hang Irish beer ads on the walls, line up beer mugs etched with your favourite beer logo, and make garlands bearing typical Irish names such as O’Brien, Murray, Murphy, O’Reilly, and McCarthy. When it’s time to party, there’s nothing like a dark Irish beer tasting to impress your guests. Soak up the beer with mouth- watering Irish breads and Irish cheeses that rival any Canadian snack. For a real Irish meal, see what your visitors think of Galway oysters served with Waterford blaa , or buns, stuffed with bacon and cheddar.
Embrace the colours and flavours of Ireland when celebrating the national day of that magnificent country.
