Happy Saint Patrick’s Day from B&K!

Saint Patrick has a great story!  Here at B&K Movers, Havertown’s favorite moving company, we hope you have a SAFE and Happy St Paddy’s Day!  We though we would take a break from our usual marketing and tell you his brief but “moving” story! LOL!

Origins of Saint Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th in honor of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has religious origins but has evolved into a worldwide celebration of Irish culture.

St. Patrick and Ireland

  • St. Patrick, originally from Britain, is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland in the 5th century.
  • He used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity, which is why the shamrock is a symbol of both St. Patrick and the holiday.

Evolution of the Celebration

  • The first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in the United States, not Ireland, in the 18th century, when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched in New York City.
  • Over time, the holiday has become a secular celebration of Irish heritage and culture, marked by parades, festivals, wearing of green attire, and the display of Irish flags.

Saint Patrick’s Day Traditions

  • Parades: Some of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades are held in Dublin, New York City, and Boston.
  • Wearing Green: People wear green attire and accessories as a symbol of Irish pride.
  • Festive Foods: Traditional Irish foods and drinks, such as corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and Guinness, are commonly enjoyed on this day.

Global Celebration

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, particularly in areas with large Irish communities. It has become a day not only to commemorate St. Patrick but also to celebrate Irish culture and identity.


St. Patrick’s Day has evolved from a religious feast day to a global celebration of Irish culture and heritage, characterized by parades, green attire, traditional foods, and a festive atmosphere.

So there you have it!  Saint Patrick wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt in his name, so please party responsibly this year!  And wether you are moving snakes from your town or moving across tow, remember to call B&K!
