Happy St. Patrick's Day from Diana
March 17, 2011

Happy St. Patrick's day!

Today is March 17th and it is the day that we drink green beer, dress up like Leprechauns and sing Irish drinking songs.

Ok ok...so maybe that isn't the history behind today's holiday but that is what comes to mind.

For those of you interested in the history of St. Patrick's day it is actually the religious holiday celebrating the patron saint of Ireland - Saint Patrick.

"Saint Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck.

Most importantly, to those who celebrate its intended meaning, St. Patrick's Day is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide." - www.st-patricks-day.com

Check out this Saint Patrick's Day Video. It is quite cute and shows lots of different traditions related to Saint Patrick's Day.
