Thanks for stopping by.  

We wish  you all the best on this Saint Patrick’s Day! Millions of pints of Guinness is sure to be enjoyed all over the world today!

We found some info on this event at WOMANS DAY


St. Patrick’s Day has held various meanings throughout its long history. Dating back nearly 2,000 years, its origins pertain to a man (named Patrick) who at 16 years old was brought to Ireland as a slave. After being held captive for six years, he escaped Ireland, only to return years later to bring Christianity to the nation before his passing on March 17, 461 A.D. Because of his religious contributions, it’s no wonder that so many St. Patrick’s Day quotes and sayings are proud, reverent, and heartfelt.

The lighthearted nature of modern St. Patrick’s Day activities have led many people to associate this holiday with humor, cheer, and raucous partying. Some of the most entertaining quotes about this day lovingly poke fun at the traditions of both Irish and Irish-American participants. So whether you have a more serious appreciation for the culture surrounding St. Patrick’s Day, or want to enjoy a laugh, the wide range of these sayings will help get you into the holiday spirit.
