50 Best St. Patrick's Day Wishes To Toast Your Friends and Family

What to write in a St. Patrick's Day card.

St. Patrick's Day isn't just about wearing green or enjoying green-themed treats, but it is a fairly popular trend to have a green beer or two in salute to the Irish. And we have the best St. Patrick's Day wishes to share!

This holiday is celebrated every March 17 (which is believed to be the date of St. Patrick's death), and even though this date falls in the middle of Lent, the consumption of meat was allowed and the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage was had by all. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is celebrated because he is credited as the one who brought Christianity to the Irish people.

While, traditionally, this holiday was celebrated by going to church in the morning and feasting in the afternoon, its festivities have changed in more recent years. Dressing in green to avoid being pinched, indulging in green foods (even if they are not naturally so!) and partying are more fitting celebrations today. If you'd like to celebrate this holiday without the green beer, we have a list of 50 Best St. Patrick's Day wishes for you to include in a card or as a verbal greeting.
