Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day In 2022

Howdy! Deep-rooted in Irish lore St. Patrick’s day is one of America’s most iconic holidays celebrated on March 17th which is the anniversary of the death of the 5th-century patron saint of Ireland. Folklore says St. Patrick banished all the snakes from the country, but he is in fact credited for bringing Christianity to the island nation. For more than a thousand years the Irish have observed this religious holiday. Those traditions sailed to the new world along with its people becoming one of the country’s oldest customs.

New York, United States

The earliest recorded St. Patrick’s parade is said to have been held in New York way back in 1762. The city claims to have the earliest and largest St. Patrick’s Day parade in the world, attracting millions to its streets to catch sight of its expected 200,000 people who are said to be marching this year. What you should know about this year’s parade is that since it has not been done physically for two years since COVID, the organizers are promising that this parade will go full force in Manhattan. There’s much to do for everyone there, especially if you want to hit up the pubs, but the Irish Arts Center also holds classes and events today which will contain Irish music, food literature, and dance. Joining the St. Patricks Open Day at the Irish Arts Center is a perfect way to honor Irish culture by intaking knowledge of the people and place which the iconic celebration originates from.

Para Hispanoparlantes:

¡Howdy !Profundamente arraigado en la tradición Irlandesa, el día de San Patricio es una de las fiestas más emblemáticas de Estados Unidos que se celebra el 17 de Marzo, que es el aniversario de la muerte del santo patrón de Irlanda del siglo V. El folclore dice que San Patricio desterró todas las serpientes del país, pero de hecho se le atribuye el mérito de haber traído el Cristianismo a la nación insular. Durante más de mil años, los Irlandeses han observado esta fiesta religiosa. Esas tradiciones navegaron al nuevo mundo junto con su gente convirtiéndose en una de las costumbres más antiguas del país.

Hawaiian Islands Overview

Did you know that Aloha doesn’t mean hello? Although it is often used as a greeting, it really is so much more than that. As Robin explained it’s actually a value system that’s woven into the fabric of the Hawaiian people with a deep meaning. The term Aloha actually means “the breath of life” in Hawaiian so it’s literally giving and receiving the breath of life. And you know you really can’t have a more intimate connection with someone than letting them know your essence and it’s something that is really intangible.
