Cute St. Patrick’s Day baby outfits make great gifts for babies born around this holiday. Dressing your baby in a green holiday outfit, whether this is the first or second year you’ve celebrated with your child, adds a special element to family photos.
Green is the official color of St. Patrick’s Day and it’s worn to pay tribute to Ireland, also called the ‘Emerald Isle’. If you forget to wear green you just may get pinched as a reminder. So do remember to sport green and dress your baby in green as well.
Shamrocks and leprechauns are symbols of St. Patrick’s Day. The shamrock is a good luck symbol that is directly associated with St. Patrick. He compared the three leaves of the clover to the three aspects of the Holy Trinity. Leprechauns, on the other hand, aren’t associated with St. Patrick directly but are common on St. Patrick’s Day because they are uniquely Irish. Leprechauns are tiny supernatural creatures that are known for playing tricks on people and hiding away their golden treasure at the end of rainbows.
So, for a bit of luck and a lot of fun, why not dress your little one in green and celebrate this Irish holiday?
