Everyone wants to be Irish today. Why wouldn’t you want to be? The music, traditions and food are enough to make anyone Irish for a day.
Have you ever wondered… how did a holiday about a Saint turn into a day to drink green beer and eat green food? This day celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish. Celebrations of the past involved parades, festivals and wearing shamrocks. In many churches, drinking alcohol was not permitted and fasting was common practice. But on St. Patrick’s Day, the restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted just for the day. Over the years this stuck, and encouraged the holiday’s tradition we know now of drinking and eating to celebrate St. Patrick.
In Hawaii, the word “Aloha” has many different meanings -- love, affection, peace, compassion, and mercy. That’s why it’s the perfect thing to say to just about anyone in any situation. The beauty and wonder of the aloha spirit was the inspiration behind the colorful, tropical peppers we introduced last year that are now back in supermarkets throughout the country!
