Firstly, no, you cannot throw a St. Patty’s Day party in your self-storage unit, as tempting as it may be, even if all your storage unit has in it are a few extra tables and couches, which, let’s face it, would be great for a party.
First, let’s start with a little bit of history, because we know there was an Irish Saint named Patrick and that the traditional color of Ireland is green, but how did a traditionally religious day become an internationally recognized and celebrated holiday? Well, it all started, of course with Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognized patron saint of Ireland, who was born in fourth century Roman Britain. He travelled to Ireland as a bishop to spread Christianity to the Irish, who were polytheistic/pagan. It is said that he used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people. He died in the fifth century on March 17. The day eventually became an official religious feast day in Ireland and soon spread around the world to its present form as a celebration of Irish culture.
How having a self-storage unit can help you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day properly is by giving you the ability to collect the decorations, plateware, glassware, and the green, leprechaun, and other Irish paraphernalia that make the day so fun and lively. You are very limited in what you can accumulate in the way of holiday decorations if you have limited storage space, which can be very sad indeed if you look forward to March 17th every year; but with a self-storage unit, you can buy those new items to join in with the old and keep them in storage until the time comes to bring them all out. Then, when St. Patrick’s Day passes, which, for some, may be quite a while later, everything can be placed back into storage until next year, when you will probably find even more Irish decorations to add to your collection.
The holidays wouldn’t be the holidays (at least visually) without decorations, and to truly do any holiday justice, you should embrace the accumulation of fun décor instead of limit it.
