What is Saint Patrick's Day?

Saint Patrick's Day

It is a cultural and religious celebration held on the 17th of March, the traditional date of the death of Saint Patrick, the first patron saint of Ireland.

At the beginning of the 17th century, Saint Patrick's Day was considered as an official Christian holiday celebrated by the Lutheran Church, the Eastern Orthodox Churches, the Anglican Communion and the Catholic Church. This festival pays tribute to Saint Patrick as it commemorates the arrival of Christianity in Ireland in addition to the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations usually involve the "Céilidh", which means the wearing of green clothes or shamrocks, in addition to public parades and festivals. Christians who belong to liturgical confessions also attend religious services. The Lenten restrictions are neglected when it comes to eating and drinking alcohol. This has encouraged and spread the tradition of alcohol consumption during the holiday.
