Ceramicx wish our customers and friends around the world a very happy St Patrick’s Day.
St. Patrick’s Day, Friday 17th March is a Public Holiday in Ireland so Ceramicx will be closed.
Although the holiday originally started as a Christian feast day celebrating the life of St. Patrick and the spreading of Christianity to Ireland, today, it is a celebration of Irish Culture.
The shamrock, a three-leaf clover, has been associated with Ireland for centuries. It was called the “seamroy” and was a plant that signaled the beginning of spring. According to legend, St. Patrick used the plant as a visual guide when explaining the Holy Trinity. By the 17th century, the shamrock had become a symbol of emerging Irish nationalism.
