Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March and is named after Saint Patrick; the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. It’s a day Christians attend church services and the Lenten restrictions of fasting and penitence in preparation for Easter are lifted for the day.
My mom is Irish, but then again, isn’t everyone on St. Patrick’s Day; the day everyone and everything takes on somewhat of a green hue. In my town, even the court square fountain water is dyed green. So I knew it was inevitable; true to tradition, mom would most surely come up with something green for me to wear today.
