There’s a hint of spring in the air (hopefully), and St. Patrick’s Day, the holiday everyone loves to celebrate, even if you’re not Irish, is here. Here are some interesting facts about St. Patrick’s Day.
- St. Patrick’s Day is always celebrated on March 17, the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death.
- The first St. Patrick’s Day parade was not in Ireland, but in America.
- The traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef and cabbage was an invention of Irish immigrants who immigrated to America because corned beef was a cheaper substitute for ham or bacon.
- St. Patrick’s Day usually falls in the middle of Lent, when fasting is encouraged for Catholics observing Lent, but Irish Catholics were given a day of “break” on this day to enjoy meat, eggs and alcohol.
You can take a break and enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day feast with these delicious low-carb and keto St. Patrick’s Day recipes.
