ST PATRICK’S DAY

Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It commemorates Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the patron saint of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century, and has gradually become a celebration of Irish culture in general.

The day is generally characterised by the attendance of church services, wearing of green clothes,public parades and processions, and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating, and drinking alcohol.

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat (Caribbean Island). It is also widely celebrated by the Irish inmigrants, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others. Today, St. Patrick’s Day is probably the most widely celebrated saint’s day in the world.

Originally, the colour associated with Saint Patrick was blue. Over the years the colour green and its association with Saint Patrick’s day grew.Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn since the 17th century. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.
DID YOU KNOW?: There are 34.7 million U.S. residents with Irish ancestry. This number is more than seven times the population of Ireland itself
