St. Patrick’s Day Festivities

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th every year.  It is on this day to celebrate the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death in the fifth century.  For over 1000 years the Irish have celebrated this day as a religious holiday.  In America, people usually celebrate by wearing green, having drinks and dinner at the end of the day.

Places all around us have specials and deals for St. Patrick’s Day, including McDonalds and Dairy Queen.  McDonalds has an exclusive shake, called the Shamrock Shake, and an exclusive Mcflurry, called the Oreo Shamrock Mcflurry that are only sold during the month of March.  Dairy Queen also has an exclusive item, the Mint Brownie Blizzard, which is a limited time seasonal blizzard.  So, next time you’re getting food from one of these locations make sure to try and enjoy these limited time St. Patrick’s Day treats.
