Wait…what is St Patrick’s Day again?

St. Patrick’s Day, observed annually on March 17th, commemorates the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. While initially a religious feast day, it has evolved into a global celebration of Irish culture and heritage. The day is marked by parades, traditional music and dance performances, and the wearing of green attire, symbolising the island of Ireland (“the Emerald Isle”). St. Patrick’s Day is not only a significant cultural event for the Irish but also an opportunity for people of Irish descent worldwide to connect with their roots and celebrate their heritage.
