Pot-of-Gold-Rainbow-1What is St. Patrick's Day?

St. Patrick's Day is one of the most revered yet misunderstood holidays that we celebrate. So many people are distracted with the green beer and shots of Jameson to really take the time to understand the holiday that is St. Patrick's Day. The holiday experienced a very auspicious start. St. Patrick's Day also know as The Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious holiday that is traditionally celebrated on March 17th. Now Saint Patrick himself is known as the Patron Saint of Ireland recognized by the Catholic church. The holiday was made official in the early 17th century. That day, the lenten restrictions on eating and drinking are lifted which is how the eating and drinking in oblivion tradition started. March 17th commemorates the arrival of Christianity into Ireland and also celebrates Irish heritage and culture.
