From cookies to statues, the world is showing its Irish charm by turning things green to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day

Green cookies and shamrock-shaped treats are a great way to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day all over the world.

On Saint Patrick’s Day everyone’s an honorary Irishmen (or Irishwoman) and we’re celebrating by turning all kinds of things green for the day!

This St. Patrick’s Day, a record 70 countries around the world will be participating the popular “borrowed” holiday thanks to a huge push from Ireland’s “global greening” campaign, an effort which tries to get as many nations as possible to turn their monuments green for the day. If you don’t have a monument to turn green though, any small gesture will do — the campaign aims to inspire as many people across the world to take part in the green celebrations any way they can.

“I would emphasize that these “Greenings” are about something more than simple publicity,” Eamon Gilmore, the Tánaiste and Irish Minister for Foreign Trade, said in a statement. “The “Greenings” are emblematic of a relationship that we have built as Ireland with our diaspora communities and, increasingly, with countries around the world that take part in the Global Greening out of a spirit of friendship, respect, and partnership.”

The holiday marks the death of Saint Patrick who was said to have used the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish… and so the day is remembered with all things green and clover-like. From desserts and monuments in the desert, to the White House and mountaintops of Brazil, people are turning all kinds of things green this year to mark the holiday.


Leprechaun Tricks And Pranks For St. Patrick’s Day

I love how American teachers and parents embrace our favorite Irish holiday, welcoming these little Irish pranksters into their classrooms and homes for some Paddy’s Day fun.

When my little girl was in kindergarten she arrived home just before St. Patrick’s Day exuding pure leprechaun glee. She couldn’t wait to tell me about the shenanigans of their very own classroom leprechaun.

“He hid all the green markers,” she exclaimed.

“Then he left a shamrock on our tables after lunch.”

“Our leprechaun left footprints all over our desks,” added her equally enthusiastic brother, in a tone saying “our leprechaun is better than yours”.

Then all four of my kids looked at me questioningly:

“Do you think leprechauns will visit our house this year?”

Let me confess – my heart sank. My ever practical Irish side thought of all the “work” involved in teaming up with leprechauns.

I grew up in Ireland at a time when St. Patrick’s Day meant going to Mass, wearing a rosette on my coat, saying a few prayers, singing Hail Glorious Saint Patrick, and gorging on sweets.

I just wanted to tell my kids, there wasn’t a chance of leprechauns setting foot in our house.

But I saw the longing looks in my kids’ fun-loving eyes, and I knew I needed to welcome the leprechauns into our home, even if this meant facing a little inevitable havoc.

After a quick internet search to find out more about these St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun high jinks, I soon discovered my fellow Americans really embrace magical capers and tomfoolery. I decided I’m game to join in some leprechaun malarkey, spoofs and escapades.

And so this year, I thought I might share the leprechaun antics witnessed in our house over the years in the run-up to St. Patrick’s Day.

100000 parts BMC: 1 part green food coloring or there abouts.

Seriously though, green beer, along with St. Patty's day are American inventions designed to sell beer. As far as I know, the Irish don't celebrate it. Cinco de Mayo is the same way for Mexico.

Not that I won't drink a few for St Patty's of course.

Edit: Damn Revvy, you're quick.

Being Jewish is no excuse. Easter eggs are a pagan symbol that somehow got translated to "Christian" holidays.

Since Christians are not pagans by definition, I see no reason that Jews can't color eggs too!

Not to forget the fact that Jesus wasn't even a Christian. He was preaching a radicalized version of Judaism, NOT a religion known as Christianity. he never set out to start a religion, and never saw himself as anything other than a Jew. So go figure.

BTW, according to, imho one of the best books on the subject

Chinese food was Jesus's favorite birthday meal, and that's why Jews all go out for Chinese food on Christmas day. They got it right to begin with.

One of the best books that I've read recently. However, it doesn't answer the original question about green beer, it placed too much emphasis on wine.

If anyone needs green beer for St. Pat's day around here I will serve them a glass of BMC and a couple of drops of food coloring garnished with a shamrock or any green vegetable.

Getting back on the topic of green beer, I hear everyone's complaints about it, and I get it, but it is a gimmick, and it is something people would like to see. I recently brewed my first AG batch, and ended up with terrible efficiency. I now have 10 gallons of what essentially amounts to Bud Light. I also have a newer stout that I brewed last week that should turn out pretty good. My plan is to dye one keg of the Bud Light clone green and serve that with my stout at a St. Patty's day party. I'm doing it 100% for the factor of my idiot friends going "Wow you made green beer!"

So that being said, if you were to do the unthinkable and dye a beer green (which in no way will effect the flavor of an already pretty weak beer) how would you do it?

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Irish Soda Bread

Shepherd's Pie Potato Bowls

Don't be fooled. These aren't ordinary twice-baked potatoes: beneath the golden mashed potato top is a rich beef and vegetable filling. And unlike your casserole dish, the potato bowls are also edible.

Irish Stew

Sauteed Cabbage

Cheddar Chive Shamrock Scones

Start your St. Patrick's Day off on the right foot with these savory scones shaped like lucky four-leaf clovers.

Melissa's Shepherd's Pie

Classic Irish Coffee

Beef Potpies With Cheddar-Stout Crust

Colcannon

Irish Guinness Brown Bread

Stocking up for St. Patrick&rsquos Day? Set some Guinness aside to make Ina&rsquos foolproof recipe. Her moist, slightly sweet bread pairs just as well with salted butter as it does with corned beef and cabbage.

Corned Beef

Alton cuts no corners when preparing scratch-made corned beef: It spends 10 days in the refrigerator, soaking in a flavorful brine, ensuring a St. Patrick's Day meal that everyone will love.

St. Patrick's Day Fried Cabbage

This classic St. Patrick's Day side dish isn't truly fried, but still cooks in plenty of butter and bacon drippings. A dash of Worcestershire adds an extra savory note.

St. Patrick's Day Green Velvet Layer Cake

Skip cream cheese frosting in favor of old-fashioned boiled frosting for this layered cake.

Alton Brown's Scones

Corned Beef and Cabbage

St. Patrick's Day Green Velvet Cupcake Shamrocks

The old-fashioned boiled frosting for these Emerald Isle green cupcakes is creamy and fluffy.

St. Patrick's Day Spinach Pancakes and Corned Beef Hash

Vegetable Shepherd's Pie

St. Patrick's Day Lime Poke Cake

This beloved dessert is made of not-too-sweet buttermilk cake and very lightly sweetened whipped cream. The cake tastes best just lightly chilled, so let it warm up a bit after removing it from the refrigerator.

Corned-Beef-and-Cabbage Rolls

Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

St. Patrick's Day Mint Schnapps Shakes

A grown-up milkshake, this pale green delight is perfect as a midday treat or after-dinner dessert. It's only as good as the ice cream that goes into it, so splurge on a really high-quality one.

Skillet Soda Bread

This nutty take on traditional Irish soda bread incorporates walnuts and grated lemon zest to add a bright burst of flavor to every crumbly slice.

Corned Beef and Cabbage with Herb Buttered Potatoes

Irish Potato Cakes

Watercress Soup With Whiskey Cream

Soda-Bread Biscuits

St. Patrick's Day Mint Shakes

Milkshakes, like other simple concoctions, are only as good as their ingredients, so use high-quality ice cream and vanilla extract. Combining peppermint extract and vanilla ice cream gives the drink an extra-refreshing, minty flavor you wouldn't get from using regular mint chip ice cream.

Corned-Beef-and-Cabbage Pizza

Emerald Eggs

Black-and-Tan Pork With Spicy Ale Slaw

Guinness Float

Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs

Make a hash with leftover corned beef and red-skinned potatoes before topping the mixture with a poached egg.

Irish Cream Jelly Shots

An old-school spiked coffee drink just got an update. These boozy jelly shots have everything the cocktail does &mdash coffee, Baileys and whipped cream. Cut them into squares or use a small shamrock cookie cutter for good luck.

Melissa's Corned Beef and Cabbage

Dressed Up Irish Coffee

Nancy&rsquos boozy confection is not for the faint of heart. To kick her Irish coffee up a notch, she uses peppermint schnapps and two different types of Irish whiskey. Don&rsquot forget the whipped cream to top it off!

Wild Rice Stuffed Cabbage

Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread

Soda bread takes only a few moments to make. It requires no yeast, so no worrying that your yeast is old or your kitchen too hot. You simply throw some flours in a bowl, add rolled oats, baking soda and salt and stir in some buttermilk. Slide it into a hot oven and you have crusty, warm bread in under an hour.


13 Quick & Easy St. Patrick’s Day Desserts to Make With Your Kids

When it comes to holidays, St. Patrick’s day isn’t usually the most popular one to celebrate. Everybody still has to go to work and school, and if you don’t have Irish roots, it’s easy to forget about the day altogether. That’s a shame, though, because it’s the perfect time to get creative with some fun, festive (green!) desserts, without the pressure that major holidays tend to bring. Plus, with all the talk of magic and rainbows and leprechauns, it’s one of the most fun holidays to celebrate with kids.

And of course, your kids are going to want to help make a festive dessert to celebrate the holiday. The key to a festive dessert that won’t take hours is keeping it simple by using candies, sprinkles, and food coloring as edible decorations. You can go all-out and dye cake batter several different colors for a rainbow or keep things super simple with dipped Oreos or candy-covered chocolate bark. The 13 Saint Patrick’s Day dessert ideas below are fun to eat and fun to make, and all of them are perfect for little helping hands. Whether you’re looking for something to bring to a school party, or just want a special after-dinner treat, there’s something here for you.

Saint Patrick’s Day parfait

These green parfaits are layered and fun, but putting them together is easy: Just whip up some instant pudding, add some green food coloring, and layer it with cool whip, brownies, and mint chocolate candies.

Leprechaun bark

If you don’t feel like dealing with getting food coloring everywhere, this easy leprechaun bark gets its color from rainbow candy and sprinkles.

Pot of gold Oreos

These souped-up pot of gold Oreos are undeniably fun, and the only “cooking” necessary is melting chocolate.

Luck of the Irish cake balls

Cake balls are a little fussy, sure, but it’s pretty fun to mush up cake and roll it into balls.

Saint Patrick’s Day green and white bundt cake

This green and white bundt cake is super colorful, but you don’t have to be precise with drizzling the frosting. In other words, it’s a kid-friendly task.

Rainbow cake roll

Admittedly, this rainbow cake roll is more of an intermediate-level dessert. You’ll need a piping bag for each different color batter you use, but other than that, it’s as easy as cake (heh).

Lucky Charms surprise-inside cupcakes

Want a simple, miniature take on the surprise-inside cake? Try these green surprise-inside cupcakes, which house Lucky Charms marshmallows under a thick smear of frosting.

McDonald’s copycat shamrock shake

There’s no heat required to throw together this thick, creamy, mega-satisfying shamrock shake. And, the whole ordeal only takes about a minute!

Saint Patrick’s Day popcorn

If fishing the shamrock sprinkles out of a box of Lucky Charms seems like a little too much work for a bowl of green-flecked popcorn, use a little bit of green food coloring to dye mini marshmallows instead.

Saint Patrick’s Day trail mix

You don’t need to be mid-hike to enjoy this sweet, chocolatey St. Patrick’s Day trail mix.

Marshmallow leprechaun hats

These adorable leprechaun hats are all about assembly, so it helps to have plenty of little hands available to help.

Fittingly, what many of us call St. Patrick’s Day is more formally known as The Feast of St. Patrick. Over 1600 years after his death, St. Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland, whips our appreciation of Irish culture and heritage into a froth of all things green and Irish once a year on the anniversary of his passing. While many of us know March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day, there is much more to this holiday than green beer and corned beef. For example, did you know that:

  • The shamrock, a three-sided sprig, was a sacred plant in ancient Ireland because it symbolized the rebirth of spring and has become a symbol of Irish pride.
  • “Drowning the shamrock” is a practice at the end of the day’s festivities when the shamrock is dunked into a glass of whiskey, which is drunk, and then the plant tossed over the left shoulder as a toast to the Saint.
  • There are no snakes on the island of Ireland, and this is attributed to St. Patrick. Even though there were never snakes on the island, St. Patrick gets credit for “banishing” them.
  • Leprechauns, the symbol of this Irish holiday, were originally thought to be magical, but cranky little figures whose job it was to repair the shoes of other fairies—their masterful trickery used to protect their treasure.
  • St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival, because really, who doesn’t love green beer?

So much to learn, but not on an empty stomach, right? Well, that won’t be a problem. We found some great ways to celebrate, experiment with new menu items and save on St. Patrick’s Day food.

1. Green beer!

Guinness is by far the most popular choice for St. Patrick’s Day. Is it too dark to turn green? Science says: “Yeah, it is.” Unfortunately, Guinness is too dark to truly turn green, although you might be able to get some green foam out of it.

Instead, pick something pale. Harp is the perfect pale, Irish, beer to turn green. The easiest method is to simply get your hands on some classic food coloring, place 3-5 drops in a glass, and then pour your beer. Remember to put the drops in first — if you do it after, it tends to get stuck in the foam and never really mixes in. If you want to go natural, you can also use spirulina or matcha powder, although these will definitely change the flavor.
