St Patrick’s Day for Kids 2021

Tiffany Larsen| 22 Feb, 2021

If you’re feeling like your luck is increasing lately, it could be because St Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! With so many ways to celebrate at home, we’re going to help you find the best way to celebrate with your kids and your family. St Patrick’s Day is also a great reason to dress up and find a cute, kids st pattys day dress or outfit to wear - green of course!

What does St Patrick’s Day celebrate? 

St Patrick’s Day celebrates the Christian Saint, Saint Patrick, who was responsible for bringing Christianity to Ireland. Because of the strong relationship that American’s have with the Irish, we celebrate it here too, especially in places with big Irish communities, like Chicago and Boston.

Leprechauns, Luck, and The Four Leaf Clover

There are so many traditions and icons with St Patrick’s Day, it can be hard to keep them straight! 

The four leaf clover is one that we’re all familiar with. It’s used on St Patrick’s Day because it’s a national emblem of Ireland. The legend goes that St Patrick himself used the shamrock to explain the holy trinity to the Irish. Eventually, four leaf clovers were used as a way to dress up an outfit for church, and the tradition persists today. When the Irish came to America, there weren’t any clovers growing, so the Irish had to draw them! 

The Leprechaun is also a symbol of St. Patrick’s Day. Leprechauns in Ireland are tricksters and are cheeky! When the Irish came to America, they brought their Leprechauns! Soon enough, Leprechauns became a symbol of Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day. But why do YOU have to wear green? WELL! It’s said that Leprechaun’s can’t see green, so they can’t see you on St Patrick’s Day if you’re wearing green, which means they can’t play tricks on you and pinch you!
