Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone, especially anybody who is from Ireland.

Saint Patrick's Day (March 17th), is an Irish holiday honoring Saint Patrick, the missionary credited with converting the Irish to Christianity (in the 400's AD).

Green is associated with Saint Patrick's Day because it is the color of spring, Ireland, and the shamrock. Leprechauns are also associated with this holiday. Leprechauns of legend are actually mean little creatures, with the exception of the Lucky Charms guy. They were probably added later on because capitalists needed something cute to put on greeting cards.

What's good luck on Saint Patrick's Day?

  • 1. Finding a four-leaf clover. (that's double the good luck it usually is)
  • 2. Wearing green. (School children have started a little tradition of their own -- they pinch classmates who don't wear green on this holiday)
  • 3. Kissing the blarney stone.

An Irish blessing to take with you today:
May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.
