Toss a coin on St. Paddy's Day!

Celebrated on March 17, a Sunday in 2024, to honor the foremost patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick's Day is trendy worldwide. Almost around the globe, people are wearing green and toasting their drinks in the name of St Patrick. Even leprechauns have been reported occasionally.

At Slots Capital, we are all in green. We're wearing shamrock prints, ready to chug down a pine to celebrate your St. Patrick's Day slots win!

The festivities generally involve public parades, festivals, green decorations, shamrocks, etc. Historically, religious restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, fostering the tradition of indulgence during the festivities.

It is said that the real saint Patrick was born in Great Britain around A.D. 390 to an aristocratic Christian family who owned lots of riches. At 16 years old, he was brought overseas to tend sheep, where he became a very deeply believing Christian.

The now-famous young Patrick arrived in Ireland to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity and change the country's course. He died on March 17, 461, after 40 years of living in poverty, teaching, traveling, and working tirelessly. Many stories and legends grew around Patrick, culminating in a world-scale celebration.

Is It St. Paddy's Or St. Patty's Day?

Coming from the Irish culture, the original Irish name of Patrick is Pádraig. Thus, the abbreviated version is retrieved from it is Paddy. Patty is considered to come from the name Patricia or, even worse, is associated with a burger patty.

Therefore, if you want to use the shortened version, you would say "Paddy's Day" when you refer to St. Patrick's Day. Year in and year out, people of Irish heritage (and pretty much people from all backgrounds) celebrate this day with religious services, joy, and feasts.

Ready For The Cèilidhs?

Before we go into detail, let's clarify what "Cèilidhs" means. It is a traditional Irish social gathering that usually involves dancing and playing folk music at a house party or in an enormous hall. Think of them as the discos and nightclubs of yesterday. Cèilidhs facilitated courting and marriage prospects for young people and still play an essential role for young people in rural parts of Ireland and Scotland.

Nowadays, Cèilidhs are combined with popular culture due to their worldwide diversity. Acts include electronic dance music, jazz, rock, and ska elements with the traditional Irish sound.

Patrick's Day Parades

There are more than 32 million US residents with Irish ancestry (about seven times the population of Ireland). This might explain why it was there that St. Patrick's Day became a colossal celebration that now extends to dozens of countries around the world.

St Patrick's Day Parade has been celebrated in New York since 1762, making it one of the oldest in the US and one of the world's largest parades overall. Traditionally held on March 17, the parade draws around 150,000 people and two million spectators yearly to Fifth Avenue in Manhattan!

While New York might have more people, Chicago has and is a spectacle alone. People there have been coloring the Chicago River green since 1962! The river is dyed on the morning of Chicago's St. Patrick's Day parade, which takes place the Sunday before St. Patrick's Day.

The oldest recorded St Patrick's Parade was held outside the US or Ireland. On March 17, 1601, Ricardo Artur, an Irish vicar in a Spanish colony, was probably among the first to bring this tradition outside Ireland.

Today, millions of Americans of Irish ancestry celebrate their cultural identity and history by enjoying St. Patrick's Day parades. Corned beef and cabbage is a traditional St Patrick's Day dish. More than 25 billion pounds of beef and over 2 billion pounds of cabbage are produced yearly in the US to meet demand.

Even the US president celebrates St Patrick's! Every year (since 1952), the US president is given a crystal ball filled with shamrocks. At the time, the Irish ambassador, John Hearne, sent a box of shamrocks to President Harry S. Truman! There is so much to the background of this tradition. 

Drowning The Shamrock

three leaved shamrock for st. paddy's day

The good luck of the shamrock actually began as a revered pagan symbol and remains to this day. It is said that Patrick used its three leaves to explain the Holy Trinity. It is considered lucky to "drown" the shamrock - dunking it into a glass of whiskey. The shamrock at the bottom of the glass would be thrown over the drinker's left shoulder when the whiskey was drunk. Legend says St. Patrick himself dunked the shamrock for the first time.

Shamrocks are also famous for the four-leaf clover. Biologically speaking, four-leaf clovers are rare. A fourth clover is a mutation. Since they are so rare to find out in the open, finding one simply makes us feel lucky. The four-leaf clover is among the world's most recognizable good luck symbols!

Green Everywhere!

It's considered lucky to wear and use green during St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Still, the color has a deeper historical meaning, symbolizing the stand against British colonialism for Ireland. To identify with its culture, the green in the Irish flag represents Catholics, Orange represents the Protestants, and White represents peace between them. Also, Ireland itself is known as the 'Green Isle.'

Legend says that leprechauns can't spot people wearing green. If you want to avoid getting pinched by one, it is another reason to wear green on St. Patrick's Day. Tradition took over the legends; people are going wild pinching anyone not wearing green on this day!

Celebrating In Ireland!

St. Patrick's Day was already celebrated by the Irish back in the ninth and tenth centuries. While being an Irish tradition, it wasn't until 1996 that the first St. Patrick's Festival was held in Dublin, and in time, it became a multi-day celebration: In 1997, the holiday became a three-day event, and by 2000, it was held for four days, and in 2006 it was finally extended to last five days long!

Celebrations in Ireland include concerts, outdoor performances, fireworks, and Cèilidhs. Dublin hosts around 1 million visitors overall annually around St. Patrick's Day. Many other cities and towns in Ireland hold their own parades and festivals as well. Cities like Cork, Belfast, Darry, Galway, and Waterford are all joining the fun!
