St. Patrick’s Day

The Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious festival in honor of the patron saint of Eire (Ireland). On March 17th of each year, the Irish and everyone who wants to be Irish get into a celebrative mood and put on a festive garb.

In November 1995, the government of Ireland inaugurated St. Patrick’s Day as a major annual international festival with the main goal of showcasing the Irish culture. It also provides opportunity and motivation for people of Irish descent to attend and join in the imaginative and expressive celebrations. Since then, major cities in many countries across the globe celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with parades, dancing, eating, drinking, and wearing shamrocks and anything green.

On this day, EVERYONE IS IRISH! And it’s especially fun for kids!

"The beauty of the truth is that it need not be proclaimed or believed. It skips from soul to soul, changing form each time it touches, but it is what it is."— Mark Helprin
