What is Saint Patrick's Day? Along with so many culturally diverse celebrations held around the year, one very "green" celebration is known as Saint Patrick's Day. Every year, St. Patrick's Day falls on the 17th of March, remembering St. Patrick. He was an Irish patron who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. St. Patron was raised in Roman Britain but was captured by Ireland and taken as a slave as a young adult. Some years later he returned to his family and returned to the church. Later, he went back to Ireland and worked as a missionary in the North and West of the country. Today, St. Patrick's Day is symbolized by the "Shamrock." It is a leaf of the clover that signifies the Holy Trinity. People around the globe wear green and the flag of the Republic of Ireland. Parties are adorned with green color, and people enjoy traditional foods and sweets of Ireland. Some people also plan a pilgrimage to the St. Patrick's Purgatory.
