Going green on March 17th for Saint Patrick's Day is a tradition in many countries around the world, even those outside of Europe or North America. Although it's perhaps most popular in the USA where it's kind of a national holiday. I've actually heard that St. Patty's Day is more popular in Canada and the USA than in England or Ireland, if you can believe that!

Why do People Wear Green for St. Patrick's Day?
Wearing green on St. Patrick's Day might seem like kind of a natural thing to you. You've probably been doing it your entire life! But why exactly do people wear green on this special holiday? I'll give all the details about it here!
The legend behind it is that St. Patrick used the shamrock, which is a three leaf clover to explain the holy trinity to the Irish, who'd previously never been exposed to Christianity. The trinity is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Although that story first appeared in 1726 in writing, it probably dates back later than that.
Anyway, since that time, the color green has been strongly associated with the Irish and more widely with Saint Patrick's Day celebrations around the world.
