St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most recognized holidays around the world. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. It slowly changed to the festivities that we hold today. In the mid-1990′s, the Irish government wanted use St. Patrick’s Day as a way for the Irish to embrace their history and culture. St. Patrick’s Day has now turned into a holiday that is enjoyed world-wide, and by a variety of people,some who are not even of Irish descent. People celebrate by wearing greens, eating Irish food, and drinking beer. Therefore, you have to make sure that you are ready to venture outside your home wearing some St. Paddy’s gear. If you don’t wear green, you will have a sore arm from all these pinches you are going to be receiving. There are so many ways to represent your Irish (even if you’re not) pride by having a few items.

Definitely have a t-shirt says a famous saying, such as “Kiss Me, I’m Irish.”  If you want to be more original, then why not create your own St. Paddy’s shirt with your own saying it on it. You can start with a green shirt, and you can either add shamrocks all over it, or make the saying stand out. on its own. Add a green cap to the ensemble, and you will not have to worry that someone will pinch you for not wearing green.

You should add a St. Patrick’s necklace or two the ensemble.   This can be a quick and easy way to show other people that you mean business. Necklaces can be a way to bond as well because you can take one off of your neck, and pass it out to your friends, or a complete stranger, who is at the same Irish pub as you.  Definitely a great conversation starter, especially when you have a unique one.

This can also be a great way to connect with your clients, if you are an entrepreneur and/or business owner.  You can hand these to your clients whenever you see them.  This is a great way to have your clients remember you because you will be one of the only, maybe the ONLY one, who will send something out during St. Patrick’s.

There are buttons, magnets, and even wigs to show your Irish spirit.

Customizing gear to fit what you want is the best way to go because you will get stopped while walking around the pub by people asking where you got it because they have never seen it before. Don’t wait til March 17th to get all your St. Paddy’s day swag!
