As most of us know, St. Patrick's Day is the annual celebration of all things Irish and is named after one of the patron saints of Ireland, Saint Patrick. The day is usually on the 17th of March, but as has happened this year where it will be held on the 15th March, it sometimes has to be moved to avoid the second day in Holy Week.
It is traditional for people to go to parades, eat traditional Irish food and drink Irish beers like Guinness. It is also very popular for people to get dressed up in green clothing or indeed to wear Irish themed fancy fancy dress costumes. A leprechaun costume is an obvious choice for an Irish costume as well as dressing up as a Shamrock, the national symbol of Ireland.
Taking a look around what is available for St. Paddy's day on the web, there are many leprechaun costumes, including sexy versions for ladies, funny shamrock hats, green wigs and there are even St. Patrick's Day Costumes for your dog!
