St.Patrick's Day is March 17. It began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. Now, it becomes an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.
Talking about food, corned beef, cabbage and lamb stew accompanied by traditional Irish soda bread are something to taste on St. Patrick's Day. The corned beef (from kosher butchers) and cabbage are essentially Jewish corned beef put in a pot with cabbage and potatoes. This is American-Irish food. The authentic traditional St. Patrick's Day meal in Ireland is still lamb or bacon.
St. Patrick Day is known as one of the biggest drinking holidays. On St. Patrick's Day, there are parties with a lot of beer and cocktail!
For beer, you would have Guinness, Bulmers (also called Magners) Cider, Smithwick's Ale, Jameson Irish Whiskey or some Bailey's Irish cream.
