St Patrick's Day A Day Of Celebration For The Irish Of The World
Wishing you the luck of the Irish! Dedicated to the Irish around the world. Being a Celtic Woman, I really enjoy celebrating St. Patrick's Day every year. But you don't have to be Irish to celebrate this holiday.
Shamrocks, reed pipes, and leprechauns - these are some of the many symbols that remind us of St. Patrick's Day. what is this early spring holiday all about? Though originally a Catholic holy day, St. Patrick's Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century, the spirit of this ancient Irish holiday is still alive in many countries.and has gradually become a secular celebration of Irish and Irish American culture in general. So throw on some green and learn to party like the Irish!
St. Patrick is the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland, and is credited with the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Much Irish folklore surrounds St. Patrick's Day, also known as the "Festival of Patrick," or the "Feast of St. Patrick,". Although mostly unsubstantiated, some of this lore includes the belief that Patrick raised people from the dead. He also is said to have given a sermon from a hilltop that drove all the snakes from Ireland although no snakes were ever native to Ireland. Some people think this is a metaphor for the conversion of the pagans.
From parades to pub crawls, communities around the nation gear up for St. Patrick's Day Celebration.

St. Patrick's Day Wearing of the Green - History of the March 17 Celebration Around the World
If you are Irish or part Irish, or you have an interest in Irish Heritage, you may want to read this book to learn more about the dramatic story of how March 17 was transformed from a "stuffy dinner for Ireland's religious elite to the world's most public ethnic festival." St. Patrick's Day is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in America, long celebrated with more fanfare in New York than in Dublin.
"THE WEARING OF THE GREEN is the first book to chronicle the full history of St. Patrick's Day--from its medieval origins...exploring the shared heritage of the Irish through the evolution of this amazing holiday."
St. Patrick's Day
"As the one national holiday that is celebrated in more countries around the world than any other, St. Patrick's Day is the day when everyone wants to be Irish".
St. Patrick's Festival
St. Patrick's Festival in Ireland was established by the Government of Ireland in November 1995. The celebrations held in Ireland for St. Patrick's Day prior to 1996 paled in comparison to those held abroad. The principle aim of the Festival is to develop an international festival around the national holiday to reflect the talents and achievements of Irish people.
The first St Patrick's Festival was held over one day, and night, on March 17th 1996. In 1997, the word "Day" was dropped from our title and it became "St. Patrick's Festival", a three day event. The festival has since grown to become a four day festival.

St. Patrick's Day Parades & Events
The St. Patrick's Day custom came to America in 1737. That was the first year St. Patrick's Day was publicly celebrated in this country, in Boston. Today, people celebrate the day with parades, wearing of the green, and drinking beer. One reason St. Patrick's Day might have become so popular is that it takes place just a few days before the first day of spring. One might say it has become the first green of spring.

St. Patrick's Day Party Toasts
St. Patrick's Day Toasts
May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven
half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
Here's to a fellow who smiles
When life runs along like a song.
And here's to the lad who can smile
When everything goes dead wrong.
