Happy St. Patrick's Day from Old Kinderhook!

All over the world, people celebrate St. Patrick's Day. While the holiday is built on Irish culture, many of the popular traditions began in the United States. Old Kinderhook brings you some insight on several of the most popular St. Patrick's Day traditions. Which ones will you take part in this year?

St. Patrick's Day Traditions

1. Wearing Green 

Many people across the United States will wear the color green today. In fact, you might just get pinched if you don't! Wearing green represents Irish heritage and culture for many, but in Ireland the wearing of green for that purpose doesn't really exist. However, they do wear shamrocks to symbolize the teaching of the holy trinity by St. Patrick.

2. Parades 

Another American tradition is all the parades and festivals. The first St. Patrick's Day actually took place in New York City, not in Ireland. Since then, parades have become a major attraction for millions all over the world. Hundreds of parades occur in many different countries each year, with thousands in attendance. It wasn't until 1955 that Dublin started holding St. Patrick's Day parades to try to boost tourism. In Ireland today, the St. Patrick's Festival takes place over 5 days and involves art shows, plays, concerts, fun fairs and the main parade.

3. Green Beer 

Good luck trying to find green beer in Ireland. While you may be able to find it in select bars in Dublin, this tradition of drinking green beer actually started in the United States. In fact, up until the late 1970s, Irish pubs were prohibited from being open on March 17. More than likely the tradition of green beer stemed from the Irish tradition of dropping a clover in one's drink, then drinking it all down for good luck. The first recorded incident of beer turning green occurred in New York City in 1914.

4. Corned Beef and Cabbage 

Each year, thousands of Irish-Americans gather at the dinner table to enjoy a "traditional" meal of corned beef and cabbage. While cabbage has long been an Irish food, corned beef only became associated with St. Patrick's Day at the turn of the century. Irish immigrants living on New York City’s Lower East Side substituted corned beef for their traditional dish of Irish bacon to save money. They learned about the cheaper alternative from their Jewish neighbors.

5. Irish Music

From the ancient days of the celts, music has always been a big part of Irish culture and therefore, St. Patrick's Day. The Celts had an oral culture, where religion, legend and history were passed from one generation to the next through stories and songs. After being conquered by the English and forbidden to speak their own language, the Irish turned to music to hold onto their heritage. Today, traditional Irish bands are gaining popularity. The music features instruments that have been used for centuries, including the fiddle, the uilleann pipes, the tin whistle and the bodhran.

The team at Old Kinderhook wishes you a very Happy St. Patrick's Day! Along with St. Patrick's Day comes the start of Spring at the Lake. What better place to enjoy this warmer weather than The Lodge at Old Kinderhook. We are now open and taking reservations for the 2015 season. Come check it out and see what all we have going on at the BEST golf resort at the Lake of the Ozarks!
