I am re-posting this from last year FYI…
Sooo, it’s St Patricks Day again.
I don’t have any Irish blood – the love of potatoes must come purely from the German ancestry – but St Ps day is interesting.
There apparently was not one actual St Patrick & the “driving of the snakes” from Ireland was totally a metaphor for the Christian conquest of Paganism…There is loads re it on the web…
Briefly, the shamrock was apparently a symbol of the triple goddess and pagans often wear or decorate with snakes on St Ps day as a quiet little up yours.
These days are also ancient festivals of Dionysus….& Bacchus
So, it seems clear – wear something with Snakes on it to honour the poor persecuted Pagans of yore and drink wine to honour Bacchus and Dionysus. If you don’t drink, you can just do the over the top libidinal aspects of Dionysus and Co.
