Green Promotional Mugs for St. Patrick's Day

Promotional mugs are brilliant promotional tools that with increase brand awareness in offices all over the country... but the big question is what colour mug should you go for? It's strange how different colours are associated to certain things, for example fire is associated with the colour red, orange or yellow and water is associated with blue.

There are also certain public holidays that are associated with colours too, i.e red for Christmas and Valentines Day and green and yellow for Easter. Green and yellow are associated with Easter mainly because of the time of year Easter falls on. At this time of year the grass gets greener (after battling through the winter months) and many animals come out of hibernation. Many colourful flower start to bloom too, hence why the colours green and yellow are associated with Easter.

There is also some debate that Christmas used to be associated with the colour green, as many years ago 'Santa' wore a green suit, not a red one. Red only took over after a well know cola brand started showing 'Santa' in a red suit instead of green. Anyway, less talk about Christmas, lets focus more on the upcoming holidays and the summer season that is fast approaching.

The next public holiday (in Ireland) is St. Patrick's Day. This public holiday is associated with the colour green. St. Patrick's Day was originally only celebrated in Ireland, as traditionally it's a Roman Catholic feast day for Ireland's patron saint. However the celebrations soon evolved into other parts of the world, mainly because Irish immigrants in the US held some of the first St. Patrick’s Day parades.

Why is green associated with St. Patrick's Day? Much like Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day had a different colour associated with it (blue). However this started to change in the 17th century to green. There are a few reasons why the colour green is associated with this day, one of which is that green is one of the colours in Ireland's tri-colour flag. Another reason is that Ireland is known for its lush green landscapes.

This year St. Patrick's Day is on the 17th March, which is not that far away. This is the perfect opportunity to hand out those green promotional mugs that you've had branded with your company logo. If you haven't got your green promotional mugs at the ready for this day, have a look at the promotional mugs on our website.
