Spring finally seems to be springing, the birds are singing in the sky, and the biggest green tinted celebrations ever to come out of the Emerald Isle is just a week away. That’s right, on March 17th people across the world will be celebrating St Patrick’s Day.
In times of yore, St Patrick’s Day was a religious day and marked with a feast. These days it’s been transformed into a celebration of Irish culture, with folks all over the world donning their best green clothing and enjoying a pint (or two) of Guinness. Will you be attending one of the festivals or parades held across the globe this year?
For those of you who prefer a quieter celebration, we’ve tracked down the perfect project for you. If it’s a St Patrick’s Day knit project you’re after then these crocheted mini Leprechaun hat jar cosies by Yarnovations tick all the boxes. They’re simple enough that you can finish them in a couple of hours and most importantly of all? They’re the perfect size to fit round your favourite mug so you can raise a tea-flavoured toast to the Irish.
Once you’re done, slip it round your favourite mug and brew a tea of your choice. Personally, we’ll be sticking to the theme and going for Cosy Lemon Green or Jasmine Green (psst…click here for some fun green tea recipes if you fancy something a bit different) but with so many flavours to choose from we won’t blame you for picking something else.
Lá Fhéile Pádraig!
