Thank your lucky charms, Wordans help you create unique Saint Paddy's Day t-shirts!

Saint Patrick’s Day is but 15 days away. Did you know that Montreal has had the longest running parade in all of Canada? Since 1824 we’ve celebrated with a yearly parade. In the US, the longest running parade has been in Boston (shocker!). Yep, they’ve been true to their tradition since 1737!

This year, the Montreal parade will be held on Sunday, March 14th at noon, along Ste-Catherine street, starting at Fort. You can get more information here. Here are links to other parades happening across Canada: Toronto, ON, St. John’s, NFLD, Quebec City, QC and Ottawa, ON. Normally there’s one in Vancouver too, but the Vancouver Paralympic 2010 games will be on.

Everyone is Irish on Saint Paddy’s Day, so what will you be up to? Do you go all out and deck yourself in green? Drink beer at an Irish pub? Go to the parade with the kids? If you do, you’ll need a t-shirt. AND we’re offering a 15% discount on your order. Simply use the code “Irish” when you checkout. Get one for everyone you’ll be celebrating with. They can all be the same, of slightly different. The possibilities are endless! Come to Wordans.com and create something super creative and unique for Saint Patrick’s Day 2010.

I personally like things a bit more low-key. A quote from a famous Irish author would be nice.

I like these two from James Connolly (the second one reminds me of Canadians too):

Apostles of Freedom are ever idolized when dead, but crucified when alive.

The Irishman in English literature may be said to have been born with an apology in his mouth.

Here’s are two from Robert Wilson Lynd:

Knowledge is power only if a man knows what facts not to bother with.

Life, it seems to me, is worth living, but only if we avoid the amusements of grown-up people.


But I must admit, there’s something about a graphic t to drive the sentiment and feeling home. Here are a few other suggestions:

Kiss me I'm drunkish

A special visit from the short track speed skating athletes heading to the Olympics

Last month, Guillaume Bastille, Oliver Jean, Charles Hamelin, Francois Hamelin and Francois-Louis Tremblay were walking down St-Denis street here in Montreal and happened to pass by our office. Seeing our sign (Design your own t-shirts), right there on the sidewalk they had the brilliant idea to have t-shirts made for themselves and their 2 coaches. They bombed up the stairs and came pouring into our office much to the surprise and delight of everyone.

Guillaume Bastille, Oliver Jean, Charles Hamelin, Francois Hamelin and Francois-Louis Tremblay

These names should be familiar to you now as these guys are competing at the Vancouver Olympics as we speak. They are competing tonight for sure and then hopefully again February 20th, 24th, 26th.

They designed 7 different gag t-shirts, each with their own meaning or inside joke. They laughed the entire time. Such a great bunch of guys! They actually filmed the entire experience. We obviously would love to share the footage with you all, but I’m sure you can understand, they are kinda busy at the moment ;) After the games, we’ll try to get the clip and post an update. We also want to get permission from them to share the t-shirt designs with you.

With glowing hearts, let’s all send them positive vibes in the hopes they will win continue to advance and win some hardware! Go Canada Go!

If the Olympic fever has caught up with you too, check out some of our Vancouver 2010 designs. You’ll certainly find one that you love and the best part is that you can customize whatever design you choose to make it even more perfect!

I love speed skating

We're number 1
