The Mardi Gras is over but, guess what parade is coming soon? It is the St. Patrick's Parade which is done yearly in Mississippi, New Orlenas and other places in the US. St. Patrick's Day is celebrated and observed by the Irish and American Irish community. The family of my husband is of an Irish descent so; the family and relatives look forward to this big celebration. The photos below were taken during Mardi Gras in D'Iberville, Mississippi. I will be posting pictures of St. Patrick's Parade on my next post so; please take time to comeback and see the pictures okay?
In the meantime, St. Patrick's Day will be on March 17 and though this is not a holiday, people are celebrating this day as religious and cultural event. St. Patrick's Day is a fun activity for the whole family. There are parades, and lavish food preparation too. Though it's lent season, fasting restrictions are lifted for this day only. Wearing green with shamrocks print is popular on this day so; you will see everyone wearing green and shamrocks are everywhere..
Color green is associated with St. Patrick's Day because it was being told that St. Patrick used the #shamrock plant as a visual aid to explain the #BlessedTrinity to the pagans in Ireland.
Anyway, the food that people served on St. Patrick's Day could be anything as long as the color green is added. Most families served corn, beef, and cabbage with green cupcake and shamrock cookies.
So, are you having a St. Patrick's parade in your town?
