St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is traditionally celebrated to honor the Irish St. Patrick. He was a patron saint who wanted to
spread the word of Christianity throughout the land. There are many myths and embellishments about St.
Patrick and most of them are not true. One story says that it was St. Patrick who drove a mass of snakes out of
Ireland. Today, many countries celebrate this day, whether Irish or not. It is tradition to wear green on this day
to honor St. Patrick and to bring luck to the wearer.
