ST. PATRICK'S DAY - 17th March

We all know that when three-leaf clovers come out, it's St. Patrick's Day
This Irish holiday is always celebrated on March 17th, which is the day that Saint Patrick died.
 He was a missionary way back in the 4th century who converted the Irish to Christianity.

Did you  know?

  • Green is associated with St. Patrick's Day because it is the colour of spring, Ireland and the shamrock.
  • Leprechauns are also associated with St. Patrick's Day, although the only reason they are is because they're Irish. Leprechauns are usually mean little creatures - with the exception of the Lucky Charms guy.
  • Don't forget to follow a leprechaun! You will find a pot of gold!!!!!
