Traditional St . Patrick’s Day or More Modern? It is Up To You

What are some traditions that take place on this wonderful day that you may or may not partake in to make your event more festive?

Drowning the Shamrock

It would be best if you appreciated that even though St. Patrick’s was originally celebrated in honor of the outstanding contributions made by the patron saint of Ireland, things taking place on this day are wholly Irish. Today, drowning the shamrock is the most crucial celebration on St. Patrick’s Day.

Traditionally, drowning the shamrock included drinking a glass of whiskey with the shamrock at the bottom. The shamrock would be thrown over the left side of the drinker’s shoulder.

The day requires a few critical aspects, great food, wonderful people, and good times. This is a time that brings great joy to people in the Chicago event area. They can enjoy delicious catered food at an event hosted by their family or some companies in the local area.

Different institutions may provide good food by reaching out to a catering company like Corky’s Catering for their event in Chicago. This way, they can focus on the various festivities without worrying if their guests in Chicago would be pleased with the food offered.

These other companies can offer a menu of delicious food, catered by Corky’s Catering, that can ensure a lively and wonderful atmosphere.

Keep It Simple and Learn about St. Patrick on This Day

Catholics across the globe tend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a feast since the holiday comes in the middle of Lent, a time when Catholics are required to conduct personal asceticism as they draw a difference between the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness and their individual sacrifices. There you have it! If you want to celebrate this holiday with your church community and require delicious food for lunch, reach out to our catering company today.

We would be pleased to provide a wide range of menu options that meet your needs for your various parties.

Pay Homage to Irish Food

Cabbage and corned beef stand out as the signature meals at St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Every family celebrating St. Patrick’s Day will serve this meal to commemorate the contributions made by the Irish patron. Apart from these two, your St. Patrick’s plate could also contain colcannon (mashed potatoes and cabbage), shepherd’s pie, and a collection of meals that are dyed with a particular shade of green.

Roaming through the gardens looking for four-leaf clovers

It would be best not to confuse the three-leaved shamrock with the four-leaf clovers. Your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will never be complete if you don’t give your children a few moments to roam in the gardens as they look for the rare four-leaf clovers. The rarity of the four-leaf clovers makes seeking them a great experience.

Putting on O’ the green

Wearing the color green during St. Patrick’s celebrations is considered lucky. Remember, green in the tricolor represents the faithful. Similarly, the color green symbolizes the lush landscape in Ireland. You will appreciate that Ireland itself is considered the “Emerald Isle” or the “Green Isle”.

Pinching those who forgot to wear green

If you fail to wear green, it is a tradition to get an inch on St. Patrick’s Day. The verdant color is a representation of peace. Remember, tradition has it that you can pinch anyone who doesn’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day.

These are a couple of classic traditions that take place and a few options you can think about as you plan your festivities. View the different options we provide for our community in the Addison area.
