Saint Patrick's Day eCards - Get into the Green


By Sarah Miller    2/17/2017

In the US, Saint Patrick’s Day might be celebrated by wearing green and making a trip to the local Irish pub for green beer and corned beef with cabbage. But where did all the festivities come from?

Most people know that Saint Patrick’s Day is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461). The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Many people also consider Saint Patrick’s Day to be a celebration of Irish culture.
 
So where did the shamrocks and wearing of green come from? In Irish folklore, the shamrock (a small three-leaved green plant) was one of Saint Patrick’s teaching methods to explain the Christian doctrine of the Trinity to the Irish people.
 
What’s up with the partying? In Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Day is an official holiday with parades and festivals. It is rumored that Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day.
