St. Patrick's Day is a day to recognize Irish heritage, spread cheer, and celebrate good fortune. In Ireland, Saint Patrick's Day is an official holiday with parades and festivals. The day commemorates Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461) and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Many people throughout the world also consider Saint Patrick's Day to be a celebration of Irish culture. In the US, Saint Patrick's Day revelers might celebrate by wearing green and making a trip to the local Irish pub for green beer.
Why do people wear green on Saint Patrick's Day? 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.
