Saint Patrick's Day!

ALL BAGS - Saint Patrick's Day

Formally known as 'The Feast of Saint Patrick', this cultural and religious celebration evolved around the observance of the death of Saint Patrick, of Ireland. The celebrations were usually enjoyed around a large feast with loved ones as far back as the 7th Century.

Fast forward a few decades and Saint Patrick’s day has since evolved into a variety of festivals, celebrated globally.


ALL BAGS - Celebration


The universal theme of the day, is to appear as Irish as possible, wearing as many green items of clothing and accessories as you possibly can.

Other than heading to the nearest bar for a green beverage, there are street festivals and even formal gatherings such as banquettes, all depending on the country you may be celebrating in.
