St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

About a month after Mardi Gras, as the Calendar of Saints turns, we alight upon the feast day of St. Patrick where upon we are free to imbibe all of the green beer we can get our hands on (and unsurprisingly it is quite a lot). St. Patrick’s feast day falls on March 17th, his death date, and commemorates both St. Patrick himself and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. The day also stands to celebrate Irish culture and heritage in general. Many parades and festivals are held and Lenten sacrifices are lifted for the day (thus the popularity of green beer – drinking is banned during Lent).
