No matter what their heritage, most people will celebrate St Patrick’s Day this year, but how green will they go this year asks, the online portal for authentic Irish goods.

No matter what their heritage, most people will celebrate St Patrick’s Day this year, and what better time than when President Obama has just declared the month of March as Irish American Heritage month. So how green have you gone for St Patrick’s Day in the past and how green will you go this year?

As part of their ‘Green Discount’ campaign, the online portal for authentic Irish goods, (based in Ireland), is asking Facebookers to post up photos of themselves wearing their green outfits or accessories in order to see how green the Irish Diaspora truly are. Each and every one who posts a photo gets a discount on the Irish site.

Also, Facebook fans will decide which is the best photo and the one with the most ‘likes’ wins a St Patrick’s Day Breakfast Hamper (full of goodies to make a traditional Irish fry-up, including rashers, sausages, black pudding, scones and jam plus Barry’s Tea).

With the emphasis on fun, this Facebook campaign is sure to attract some hilarious images and, for those not willing to join in the fun, remember that the tradition is to pinch someone not wearing green so beware!
