St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and we welcome all our listeners of Irish descent (as well as those who become Irish for the day) to celebrate the holiday in Pandora style!
As many know, St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on March 17th. It is named after St. Patrick (c. AD 385-461) and commemorates the arrival of Christianity to Ireland. It has since gradually become more of a secular celebration of “Irishness” and Irish culture.
For our Pandora listeners down under, St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated in New Zealand and Australia. The Irish made a large impact on the social, political and educational systems of both countries, due to the large numbers of Irish people that immigrated to the colonies.
So whether your feasting with some Irish stew, indulging in green beer, attending a parade or just wearing green, we invite you to enjoy this year’s St. Patrick’s Day with stations curated by the “leprechaun curators” at Pandora:
