St. Patrick's Day Specials!
A few fun facts about St. Patrick’s Day:
The traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage holiday meal did not originate in Ireland. It actually became popular in the 19th century by impoverished Irish immigrants living on the Lower East Side of New York City. At the time, corned beef from Kosher butchers was cheaper than Irish bacon.
The ancient Celts considered the shamrock to be a sacred symbol of spring. When England ruled Ireland in the 18th century, they forbade the Celtic/Irish language to be spoken and outlawed Catholicism. Irish nationalists adopted the shamrock as a symbol of their heritage. This is also why the color green is worn to celebrate being Irish.
Leprechauns were not associated with St. Patrick’s Day until after 1959 when Walt Disney premiered the movie Darby O’Gill and the Little People. According to Celtic folklore, Leprechauns were small fellows who were usually cranky tricksters. It took Disney’s version of friendly, green-wearing, gold-sharing, small people that tied Leprechauns to St. Patrick’s Day.
