Irish, St. Patrick, Shamrock, Green, Leprechaun, and Beer?

Have you ever wondered how all these things are related to each other? As we loaded up our St Patrick Day T-Shirts, I did a little research, and here it goes: St Patrick had an interesting early life. He was born as British-Roman and was kidnapped by Irish at age sixteen.  After escaping he became a priest and went back to Ireland to advance Christianity to Irish, who were polytheist back then.  Now the tricky part, he used a Shamrock to explain the Trinity concept.  I do not think he related beer and shamrock in his teachings, but fortunately for beer lovers, a shamrock represents the Irish taste today for dark or light beer, warm-blooded Irish women, and a jolly good time at the nearest pub. Green is known to first have shown in the uniforms of the soldiers in the 1798 rebellion on March 17th.  Since then this day is known and celebrated by the Irish as the St. Patrick day. It is a national Holiday in Ireland and that starts explaining the beer. Now, how about that Leprechaun?  Well, I learned that these fairy tale characters were already in Irish folk tales but the combination of Leprechaun and beer provide a nice opportunity to explain what happens when you take in more beer than enough!   At teesnthings.com, we love the St. Patrick day, Irish, and Beer themed t-shirts. if you are getting ready to hit the nearest pub with your best Irish or Irish-loving friends, we have the t-shirts for you. Here are a few new irish t-shirts at the store:
