These St Patrick’s Day treat IDEAs are almost as sweet as a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

St. Patrick’s Day is an annual national holiday in Ireland, celebrating the patron saint Patrick. It generally involves parades, festivals, and wearing of green. Shamrocks are seen all over as well. 

In fact, it’s said that St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. With that in mind, we are getting ready to celebrate in our home!


St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday for us, with all the festivities and libations. We enjoy making some special treats, dressing in green, and reading fun books about leprechauns and rainbows.
