St Patrick’s Day 2016

On this day in 461 A.D., Saint Patrick, a Christian missionary, bishop and apostle of Ireland, died.  So on March 17th, every year it’s time to turn everything green so that the Irish and the Irish-at-heart can celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

All over the world, what began as a religious feast for this patron saint of Ireland, has now become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with special foods, dancing, parades and a whole lot of green.  The first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in New York City, in America in 1762, and not in Ireland, when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through the city.  Then in 1995 the Irish government set about with a large global marketing campaign to celebrate Irish charms to the rest of the world.  It’s success can now be seen with the huge celebrations we see around the world

Valentine’s Day

You must have seen this famous poem by Gammer Gurton’s Garland before, which symbolise Valentine’s Day:

The rose is red, the violet’s blue,
The honey’s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew,

And Fortune said it shou’d be you.

Valentine’s Day happens to be on the February 14 in most of the countries. Each year millions of people show appreciation for their loved ones.
