In this blog post, we present you our favourite 8 green glasses frames, and tell you a little bit about the day that inspired us to write on this topic, St Patrick’s Day! If you don’t already know, aside from being a religious day, St Patrick’s day on the 17th March is when the Irish (and many other people around the world) go crazy for the colour green: green clothes, green beer, green food and even sometimes green rivers. Read on to discover what’s different about Paddy’s Day 2021 and what styles you can celebrate the Irish national holiday with.
Party for Paddy
Like many of us around the world, the Irish don’t have many reasons to celebrate at the moment. Brexit is causing problems in Northern Ireland, a hard border with the Republic of Ireland is looming. Pub visits with friends are impossible in lockdown times. And now, to make matters worse, St. Patrick’s Day, the absolute biggest bash in the Irish annual calendar, is being cancelled for the second year in a row. Since the Irish are a humorous and fun-loving people, even in times of social distancing and curfews they should be able to come up with one or two ways to celebrate Paddy’s Day appropriately.
What do people celebrate on St. Patrick’s Day?
St. Patrick’s Day (in Irish it is called Lá Fhéile Pádraig) is celebrated in honour of Bishop Patrick, who is said to have brought the Christian faith to Ireland. St. Patrick (affectionately known as Paddy) is the patron saint of Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most important holidays on the island. However, there is often little sign of the religious background of the holiday; instead, Paddy’s Day is a green, vibrant folk festival for the entire population, where traditionally all Irish people are dressed in green, drinking a pint or two (or more) of beer and hugging everyone. Everywhere you look you can see the shamrock, the green clover, which is the most important Irish emblem along with the harp and the red-haired Leprechaun. With the help of such a shamrock, St. Patrick is said to have explained the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit to the people.

The World Celebrates in Green
However, the celebrations are not limited to Ireland itself. Apart from Dublin, large parades and festivals are also held annually in Munich, Manchester, London, New York and Boston. In Chicago, even the Chicago River is dyed green on this holiday – a somewhat bizarre but definitely spectacular sight. Especially when the backdrop is filled with people wearing green fuzzy hats, leprechaun costumes or shirts with “Kiss me I’m Irish” printed on them. But, of course, you can also dress up more discreetly. If you want to demonstrate your appreciation for the Emerald Isle in style, why not go for a green eyewear accessory. Here, we offer the Irish spirit along with glasses, because with the right frame on your nose, your mood automatically rises.
