Saint Patrick’s Day
Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is celebrated on the 17th of March.
This festivity has been celebrated since the early 17th Century and nowadays it involves large and colourful parades and festivals with the people wearing the traditional green attire and shamrocks, this colour has been associated with Ireland since at least the 1640s and since the 1680s green ribbons and shamrocks have been worn to celebrate St Patricks Day.
Saint Patrick is not only celebrated in Ireland (both Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland) but it is also celebrated by the Irish communities around the world, especially in Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the US and even in Argentina.
