Sometimes you just need more fun in your life! It’s been a long winter season here, and I’m really looking forward to spring. So here is a post all about fun things to eat, watch, and do for St Patrick’s Day Fun!
“St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the life of Saint Patrick—the patron saint of Ireland. This influential missionary has been credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day takes place on March 17 each year because St. Patrick’s death is believed to have been on March 17, 461.”Learn All About St. Patrick’s Day, by Kelsey Pelzer

Ever wonder how the Shamrock got associated with St Patrick’s Day?
“We wear a shamrock on St. Patrick’s Day because, legend says, St. Patrick used its three leaves to explain the Holy Trinity in his teachings. (The Trinity is the Father, the Son, and the Spirit as three divine persons who are one divine being [God].) The truth of the St. Patrick legend, however, is in question, as there is no direct record that the saint actually used the shamrock as a teaching tool.”St Patrick’s Day by the Editor’s of The Old Farmer’s Almanac

This post is written from the perspective of an American. However, I wanted to include how the Irish celebrate this holiday. I learned that many Irish people where a corsage of green shamrocks on their right breast. We Americans are the ones who wear green clothing, and drink green beer.
