Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the Senior Center

Published 2:48 pm Saturday, March 7, 2015

People all over the world celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, especially places with large Irish-American communities.

Feasting on the day features traditional Irish food, including corned beef, corned cabbage, coffee, soda bread and potatoes.

This holiday is celebrated every year on March 17, honoring the Irish patron saint, St. Patrick. The celebrations are largely Irish culture themed and typically consist of wearing green, parades, and drinking.
