History and Symbols:
Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century. The feast commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.
Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians also attend church services and the restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.
In our days, Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand.
The most known symbols of this day are:
- The shamrock
- Irish music
- The shake
- The leprechaun
- The gold pot
- The rainbow
