Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
In the U.S., the first half of the month of March is usually filled with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations of all sorts. Cities and towns across the U.S. will host parades, festivals, and barcrawls all leading up to the actual holiday on Sunday, March 17th. The city of Chicago consists of a large Irish-American population, and therefore is one of the cities in the U.S. that celebrates the holiday in a big way. The city hosts several parades and dyes the Chicago River green every year. In honor of the joyous holiday, Chicagoland online party supplies retailer, Windy City Novelties, has recently expanded its St. Patrick’s Day Party Supplies product line.
Although St. Patrick’s Day is deemed an Irish holiday, the truth is that the people of Ireland do not celebrate the holiday to the same extent that Americans celebrate it. The people of Ireland would celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as a religious day to honor Saint Patrick. When the Irish immigrants came to America, they were perceived as poor and unemployed individuals and were treated unfairly by Americans. Because of that, they came together to support one another and celebrated St. Patrick’s Day as a day of Irish pride.
Throughout the years, St. Patrick’s Day was not only celebrated by Irish-Americans, but by all Americans. Cities all over the country, especially with large Irish-American populations, host huge celebratory events the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day, along with the weekends leading up to the holiday. For bars and restaurants across the U.S., St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most profitable events. According to an infographic from H&R Block, St. Patrick’s Day is the second “booziest” holiday in the U.S., just after Mardi Gras. Unlike other holidays that are typically spent at home, St. Patrick’s Day draws people to go out to celebrate. Last year consumers were expected to spend $4.6 billion on St. Patrick’s Day, including decorations, apparel, and alcohol consumption.
Windy City Novelties’ allows bars and restaurants to decorate for the holiday with their St. Patrick’s Day Decorations and Party Supplies. The St. Patrick’s Day Party Pack is ideal for bars and restaurants hosting celebrations because it comes with party supplies—hats, tiaras, horns and leis—for 50 people.
