Happy St Patrick’s Day, when millions of people around the world celebrate all things Irish.

St Patrick’s Day is also known as the Feast of St Patrick, and marks the date of the Irish patron saint’s death. St. Patrick’s Day is both a cultural and religious celebration. In the early 17th century, it was made an official Christian feast! But now, people celebrate it all kinds of ways — from drinking green beer to wearing green clothing. Consumption of both food and drink has always been a big part of the day, as Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were historically lifted so that revellers could wholeheartedly enjoy their celebrations.

 “Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!”-“Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit!” 

It’s pronounced: lah leh PAH-drig SUN-uh gwitch.
