Today, 17 March is St Patrick’s Day. Thankfully it happens every year and lasts the whole day. It’s a day where we all celebrate being a little bit Irish – be it in blood or in spirit. The fact that St Patrick’s Day is celebrated all around the world is just one way in which we see how being Irish has blended into so many different communities, cultures, and nationalities. And as St Patrick’s Day is celebrated slightly differently wherever you may be in the world shows how easily being Irish mixes with every other culture.
While green is the predominant expression of St Patrick’s Day, what it symbolises is the common thread of joy and celebration that intersects every nation and culture that has been touched by the Irish spirit. More than this, the celebration of St Patrick’s Day is accompanied by a strong dose of Irish etiquette, such as friendly greetings to strangers, and generosity and reciprocity during social exchanges.
So, this St Patrick’s Day, let’s celebrate diversity. Let’s look at how the blending of cultures in South Africa and across the world makes life so much more enjoyable. One such example is the perfect blend of the award-winning Irish Whiskey Tullamore D.E.W, and the South African favourite that’s gone global the sparkling apple cider Appletiser. Both of these are simply delicious to drink on their own, however when you blend them together, something truly magical happens – and because both bottles are green, you’ll certainly be celebrating St Patrick’s Day in style.
