American Irish Holiday Themes

The life and legends of Saint Patrick, patron saint of Ireland or the Apostle of Ireland, are well known and celebrated both inside and outside of Ireland. However, while emerald islanders may view Saint Patrick's day with solemnity as a holy day of obligation. Other countries celebrate the holiday a bit differently, quite the understatement...parades, confetti, green beer, feasting, painted faces and the wearing of the green, makes this holiday probably one of the the most widely celebrated by Irish diaspora, Irish emigrants and their descendants in countries all over the world.

Shamrocks are a central symbol for St Patrick's Day because St. Patrick used the three-leafed clover to demonstrate the relationship of the Christian belief of three persons in one God. An easy transition since the shamrock had already been long considered a sacred symbol of rebirth and eternal life by pre-Christian pagans of Ireland's history. Over time, this symbol of belief, combined with the sacred number "three" that pagans believed represented the "Triple Goddesses" Brigid, 'riu, and the Morrigan, gradually changed into the current trinity lessons of today: father, son and holy ghost.

 On this day many celebrations, weddings, parades and parties are thrown by people holding dear to their Irish roots collectively celebrate their bending the rules of Lenten, which prohibition the consumption of meat, by dancing, drinking and feasting on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage. Help celebrate Erin go Bragh and St. Patrick’s Day with these coloring book patterns.

Scenic backgrounds might come in handy, not only for interesting wallpaper for the pc or laptop, but as backgrounds in photo frames or playful dioramas.

Cut the pre-colored images into strips to weave kinte style table mats pieces. Divide the images into uneven squares and reassemble to create a mosaic or fun impromptu puzzles.

Laminate to create colorful coasters for glasses and mugs.

Fold into decorative paper snowflakes - who says snowflakes have to be white? These scenic gems not only make great backgrounds but are fun to paint or color too.

The scenic images are a bit like paint by numbers sheets but without those messy numbers. Paint by number kits are fun for a while but blank canvas is always preferable for the creative process to truly grow. Most of these theme backgrounds have a coloring book version located somewhere in Scissorcraft websites.

Print or save the background images and use to display photographs or desktop wallpaper.
