“Céad Míle Hugs”

AnPost, the Irish Postal Service, is running a campaign under the slogan “Céad Míle Hugs” to send 100,000 Hugs via a postcard.

The campaign is based on the famous Gaelic saying, ‘Céad Míle Fáilte’, which translates to ‘one hundred thousand welcomes’. ‘Céad Míle Fáilte’ is the Ireland’s global greeting reflecting the counrtry’s global reputation to extend a warm welcome to all visitors.

AnPost created the ‘Céad Míle Hugs’ campaign to raise funds for the Children’s Health Foundation and Cork University Hospital Charity, both in Ireland.

We believe this is a wonderful project and would like to invite all of us to send “Love, Hugs and Kisses” to those that need it.

This could be family, friends, colleagues or anybody that we feel needs to know how much we think of or feel for them.

After that, people usually wear green clothes, hats, scarves, shoes or colour their hair green. There is literally no limit to your creativity of how you can turn out in green.

If you don’t own anything suitably green for the occasion, there are many ways to dye clothes, hats green. For example, you can use green food colouring, paint the clothes with a green dye, or use a spray-on dye.

The Origins of St. Patrick’s Day

A post about St. Patrick’s Day is not complete without its history.

St. Patrick’s Day celebrated on March 17th, and is a day for remembering Saint Patrick and his contribution to Ireland.

The origins of St. Patrick’s Day can be traced back to the fifth century when Saint Patrick was sent by Pope Celestine I to convert Ireland to Christianity.

Saint Patrick lived in Ireland for most of the remainder of his life, during which time he established churches and ordained priests, converted wealthy landowners, distributed food, taught people how to read and write, and did many other things that helped the Irish people become Christians.

With this in mind, the Irish donate to Charity on St. Patrick’s Day, as a way of saying ‘thank you’.

What about the Shamrock?

A shamrock with four leaves is traditionally used to represent the Christian symbol of the Holy Trinity because it looks like three leaves and one stem.

In addition, the three leaves and one stem look like a person’s hand, which is an ancient symbol of prayer because it represents the hand of God blessing people.

A Traditional Irish Blessing

We would like to close this post with a most traditional Irish blessing:

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

The rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Happy St Patrick’s Day
