Celebrate St Patrick's Day!


St Patrick's Day is a global celebration of Irish culture that takes place each year on 17 March. It is celebrated in Australia by the Irish community and thousands from all different cultures who enjoy the festivities and fun of the day.

Celebrations typically involve parades, music, dancing, and green decorations galore. Most people dress up in green, wear shamrocks or other Irish symbols, and enjoy traditional Irish foods and drinks. Many pubs and clubs host themed Irish events with music and live entertainment.

Although not a public holiday in Australia, it is still widely recognised in the major cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth with large St Patrick's Day parades with floats, marching bands, and dancers. This year in Sydney, the St Patrick's Day Parade and Festival is a four-day event with headline music acts, traditional Irish music and Irish markets.

Gifting on St Patrick’s Day is a great gesture to show someone you care and a way to join in the festivities especially when you can’t celebrate with family and friends in person. Gift ideas include green themed gifts like a green hat, green beer or green t-shirt. Other gifts can be those that recognise Irish history or literature such as a book or piece of Irish jewellery or even a gift card that could be used at an Irish themed venue. Food and drink are a great gift ideas as St Patrick’s Day is a time for feasting; a bottle of Irish whisky or box of Irish chocolates are perfect choices.

Sending a digital gift card is also a great choice. Treat them to an Irish dinner out at their local pub with the Pub & Bar gift card or their favourite restaurant with the Best Restaurants or Restaurant Card. Or simply send a bottle of cheer with a Dan Murphy’s or BWS gift card!
