The cultural and religious celebration held on March 17 commemorates St. Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland as well as the heritage of the Irish people in general. Celebrations include parades, turning rivers green, wearing green clothing, shamrocks (St. Patrick is supposed to have used the 3 leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the people of Ireland.) and the consumption of green beverages.
Personally, I love shamrocks.
Green is a delightful color and is associated with nature, growth, renewal, energy and most recently, the preserving of our planet ecologically. What could be more important than that? So wear your green with pride. ~ Lucy
