Slainte and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you are Irish or not, today is a day to wear green and avoid getting pinched, look for shamrocks and leprechauns, and say an Irish blessing as you toast your friends.

St. Patrick’s Day is actually a religious holiday that is celebrated every March 17th all over the world. Named after Saint Patrick, who was the most popular of the patron saints of Ireland, it was officially made a feast day in the early 17th century. Since then it has continued to become an annual celebration of the Irish culture. 

If you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for its religious meanings, you will probably attend church services before celebrating, eating corned beef and cabbage, and drinking green beer.
