What Do You Wish Someone on St. Patrick’s Day?
You could greet someone by simply saying Happy St Patrick’s Day. You can also choose to wish someone traditionally by saying ‘Beannachtai na Féile Pádraig dhuit!”, which means that you’re bestowing blessings onto the person that you are wishing.
What Does Wearing Green on St. Patrick’s Day Mean?
There are two beliefs. The first is that wearing green on St Patrick’s Day originated in the U.S when several Irish immigrants arrived in the country to build a better life. Wearing green was particularly prevalent during the great famine when Irish immigrants began to wear the color whilst waving the Irish flag. And then there’s the traditional belief that if you don’t wear green on St Patrick’s Day, a fairy or leprechaun might pinch you.

1. The Proposal
A jolly Irishman called McAlly decided to propose to his lass. The sun was shining, and the clouds were blue. It was a perfect day to celebrate St Patrick’s Day and propose. McAlly’s lass was excited and absolutely loved the ring that McAlly had given her. It was a synthetic diamond, but McAlly’s Lass was none the wiser. McAlly’s lass rushed over to her father, a jeweler, and showed him her ring. Her father took one look at the ring and told her that it wasn’t a real diamond. McAlly’s lass protested against her father and said that McAlly’s not cheap. When McAlly’s soon-to-be father-in-law asked why he had bought such a cheap ring, McAlly replied, “It’s St Paddy’s day.” it was an honor to receive such a glorious proposal on such a wonderful day. I gave your daughter a Shamrock!”
2. Always On Time

Because in Ireland, there’s no need to rush – ‘We sing songs with our bulls, especially on St Paddy’s Day!”
