St. Patricks Day Recipe & Giveaway

St. Patrick's Day Recipe & GiveawaySt. Patrick’s Day is on March 17! Are you ready? Some people may not consider this Irish holiday to be that major but our research shows that nearly 122 million Americans (39% of the population) say they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. 83% of us wear green, 34% make a special dinner, 31% attend a party, and 25% of us decorate our homes or offices. St. Patrick’s Day spending reaches up to $4.14 billion in America alone! I think it’s safe to say that St. Patrick’s Day is no small holiday. This makes us wonder though, how many of us really know why we celebrate this March holiday? I am happy to say that has the 411 on good ol’ St. Patty’s day and I’m here to share it with ya! Patrick was originally born in Britain, not Ireland. He was kidnapped at age 16 and sent to Ireland as a slave. He eventually escaped but later believed that he’d been called to spread the word of God, so he went back to Ireland. Patrick was successful in bringing Christianity to Ireland and was said to have baptized 12,000 people in a single day! Patrick eventually died but his name lived on forever! Now we celebrate all over the world by turning everything green. We aren’t very sure where the color green plays a role in this holiday but hey it’s fun! How much green you ask? About 40 pounds of green dye are used to turn the Chicago River green.

We think it’s time that contributes to the green celebration! What better way to satisfy that need than with a shamrock shake?
