Saint Patrick's Day
The Origin of St. Patrick's Day
The origin of St. Patrick's Day lies in a religious feast day in honor of the death of St. Patrick, Ireland's patron saint. Traditionally St. Patrick's Day, observed on March 17th, has been celebrated in Ireland and Irish communities around the world. The St. Patrick's Day celebration traditionally includes an Irish mass in the morning and a celebration of traditional Irish food and dance throughout the day.
Saint Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish. To those who celebrate its intended meaning, St. Patrick's Day is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide. Most Irish citizens attend mass followed by an evening of traditional Irish food and drink.
St. Patrick's Day Parades
On this day of celebrating everything Irish, perhaps the biggest celebrations are the major parades which take place in Dublin (and other Irish towns and villages) and major cities around the world. This recently popular parade tradition actually began not in Ireland but in America. The three largest parades of recent years have been held in Dublin, New York and Birmingham, England.
The New York celebration is the oldest and largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in the world. The parade dates back to 1762, and in 2003 more than 150,000 marchers (bands, military and police groups, county associations, emigrant societies, social and cultural clubs etc.) participated.
Traditions of St. Patrick's Day
Although it began in Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated in countries around the world.
Cities around the world hold St. Patrick's Day parades and festivals to mark the occasion.
On St. Patrick's Day, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. The most common traditions on St. Patrick's Day include wearing green, eating Irish food and drinking large amounts of Irish beer. Interestingly, the color green is considered unlucky in Ireland since green is connected to the old green flag and a time when Ireland was not free.
Saint Patrick's Day Symbols
St. Patrick's Day is a holiday known for parades, shamrocks, Leprechauns, corned beef and cabbage.
