All kinds of special days and occasions can be celebrated and incorporated into printed shirts created with screen printing. The one day a year that celebrates all things Irish is St.Patrick’s Day on March 17th. People in many places around the world dress in green, eat Irish food, drink Guinness, Whiskey and Green beer and have fun with friends. St.Patrick is Ireland’s patron saint and is said to have driven the snakes from Ireland and helped convert the Irish from Paganism to Christianity. It is a national holiday in Ireland but it is still celebrated globally too. It is a chance for merchants to customize items and make some money, as well as for businesses and people to market while joining in for the special day.
