As we know Saint Patrick’s Day is coming on March 17th. The festive holiday which celebrates Irish culture and heritage has been highly popular in the United States due to the large Irish immigrant population. Some of the traditions include wearing the color green and incorporating shamrocks with the lovely hue. Parades and festivities in the streets are quite popular on St Patrick’s Day. The festivities were brought from Catholic traditions which waived the Lenten practices, and allowed people to eat and drink as they pleased for the day. According to legend Saint Patrick spent his time teaching the pagans of Ireland about the holy trinity by using a three leaf shamrock. Saint Patrick passed on March 17th and thus the day became a holiday and the green shamrock became its traditional commemorative symbol.
In the United States a traditional Irish-American dish served on Saint Patricks day is Corned beef. This meat is delectably cured in salt to give it an amazing texture and flavor. Corned beef became a staple dish for St Patrick’s Day in the 19th century as a substitute for the traditional Irish dish Bacon and cabbage.
