Saint Patrick’s Day is just over a week from now and over here at The Teelie Blog, we’re gearing up for a fun celebration with family and friends. Saint Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious celebration held every March 17 in honor of the death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. While it is mostly an Irish cultural celebration, many Christians around the world are also partaking in the fun festivities of the holiday. It’s often associated with lots of drinking, eating, and wearing of green clothing and accessories. The reason behind this is that the Lenten restrictions on drinking alcohol and eating are in fact lifted on that day and instead, alcohol consumption is in fact, encouraged! This year, we’re celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day with some fun alcohol-themed games and knick knacks. We’ve curated the most fun Saint Patrick’s Day gift ideas ever, which you’ll find below. Get inspired to give the gift of fun in honor of Saint Patrick!
