HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY – SOUTH AFRICAN STYLE!
St. Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of what it means to be Irish; the spirit, the determination, the creativity and the indefinable qualities that make the Irish people who they are.
Once a year, in cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg, the streets are filled with South Africans and tourists wearing strange green clothing and drinking green beer – a sign that St Patrick’s Day has arrived.
Here in Canada, we celebrate the holiday by day drinking and partaking in the celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, and a whole lot of green.
In the spirit of the holiday, here is a list of some GREEN Eat Sum More delicacies that you and your family & friends can enjoy on March 17th
MARCH 21st IS HUMAN RIGHTS DAY IN SOUTH AFRICA
Human Rights Day is a national holiday that is commemorated annually on March 21st in order to remind South Africans about the sacrifices that accompanied the struggle for the attainment of democracy in beloved South Africa.
Human Rights Day is historically linked with March 21st 1960, and the events that took place in Sharpeville. On that day, 69 people died and 180 were wounded when police fired on a peaceful crowd that had gathered in protest against the Pass laws. The South African democratic government declared March 21st to be Human Rights Day – to commemorate and honour those who fought for the liberation and the rights we enjoy today.
To celebrate this historic day, the traditional food that is served is called Bunny Chow, which is a delicious South African dish consisting of a hollowed-out loaf of white bread filled with meat, Durban curry, beans and mielie (see Recipe of the Month below).
