The excitement of St. Patrick’s Day, the Irish national holiday celebrated around the world, is ready to hit the town with events organized all over Istanbul, as well as, in Izmir, Ankara, and Bodrum tonight.
The only rule, although certainly not strictly followed, is to wear something green on the day otherwise you become fair game to the tradition of pinching those not donning Ireland’s official color. According to legend, wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns, the mischievous fairy-like creatures forever seeking a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, who also have an affinity for pinching. So, put on something green and get out there to discover the wonderful world of Irish-themed venues.
You will not have to travel to Turkey’s major cities to enjoy the celebrations. Here in Kusadasi, many of our local pubs and restaurants will be turning green and welcoming you to come and join them for a fun-filled evening.
Wherever you are in the world and wherever you decide to celebrate tonight, send in your photos to…firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make a collection for our website. Enjoy St Patrick’s Day everyone.
