Celebrating St. Patricks Day

Saturday March 17 will be St. Patricks Day and depending on where you live this can be a really fun holiday. You can enjoy parades, feasts ( the restrictions of Lent are lifted for this day), and a variety of traditions. One tradition we all seem to participate in is the wearing of green. Originally the color associated with Saint Patrick was blue. But with time green and its association with Saint Patrick grew. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock (a three-leaved plant) to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. If you need an online reference for a Saint Patrick Day meal you may use the following: .
