Promotional Clothing UK: March 17th is the day that the whole world turns green and Irish and whoever is not sporting green then deserves to be pinched! There happens to be plenty of St. Patrick’s Day t-shirts around so we narrowed it down to the best ones around to help inspire you.
While it is not an international holiday, it is has to be one of the most celebrated days of the year. It was impressive how last year from Dublin all the way to Dubai and even the International Space Station, the Irish celebration was heard worldwide. Mike was kind enough to put together how the world celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and it really is impressive how green the world became.
Even as popular as it is, many don’t know why this day is even celebrated. So quick history lesson: The Feast of Saint Patrick dates back to more than fifteen thousand years ago and the reason behind this celebration was to commemorate the death date of the most commonly-recognised patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. This day also serves to honour the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.
But “Why the copious amounts of drinking?” you might ask. St. Patrick’s Day was also the day that the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking were lifted for the day. Throughout the years the tradition of indulging in abundance of alcohol has increased, but no one seems to be complaining.
Year after year t-shirt designers get more creative with the Irish innuendos and puns for the St. Patrick’s t-shirts and we love it! You can never have too many designs in the day that everyone wears something green or Irish.
Whether you are Irish, or just Irish for the day, I hope this selection inspires you on what you will be wearing next week if you do not want to end up with pinch marks!
