St. Patrick’s Day

I am a little tipsy while I write this. I mean it’s a big glass of wine, but I am letting down my ancestors right now, haha…I am starting early, lol…I hope I can go to work!

Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (IrishLá Fhéile Pádraiglit.‘the Day of the Festival of Patrick’), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. 385 – c. 461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

I’m not sure I even have anything green, I am something like 1/16th Irish. On Saint Patrick’s Day, it is customary to wear shamrocks, green clothing or green accessories. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. This story first appears in writing in 1726, though it may be older.
