St Patrick’s Day Facts

No Corn In Corned Beef 

A lot of people assume that corned beef has something to do with corned beef. It came about because of the salt used to cure the meats, which was also called “corns” back in the day. 

Only Male Leprechauns

Did you know that in traditional Irish folk tales you will only see male leprechauns? They don’t allow female leprechauns.

St. Patrick was originally associated with the color blue rather than green. He was shown wearing a blue vestment. Green came about later down the line.
