St. Patrick’s Day, The Origin

St. Patrick’s Day did not start because of Leprechaun’s or Beer. Every year on March 17th, the Irish and “Wannabe” Irish celebrate a religious feast for the patron saint of Ireland. This celebration includes:

  • dancing
  • parades
  • specialty foods
  • beer
  • cabbage
  • and a whole lot of GREEN!

Customs

It is customary to wear GREEN on St. Patrick’s Day. It is said that St. Patrick used a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Pagan Irish.

The color GREEN has been associated Ireland since the 1600’s when the green harp flag was introduced by the Irish Catholic Confederation.

The wearing of green has followed through into 2016 in celebration of the holiday.
