Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland. He was born in England in 460, when the island nation was still under Roman rule. He was abducted as a child and taken to Ireland, where he spent six years in solitary confinement. At a young age, he escaped from his abductors and continued his life as a priest. His symbol is the clover because in his sermons he tried to use a clover to explain the importance of the Trinity to the faithful. Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. It is a celebration of Irish history and culture, and is a national holiday in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
In 1914, an Irish American New York City coroner named Dr. Thomas Hayes Curtin unveiled his invention of a beer the color of shamrocks at a Bronx social club.
Originally the doctor used a few drops of “blue wash”, a chemical that was used to keep white clothes from turning yellow which is actually poisonous. Now people use green food colouring, to be on the safe side – and to follow this tradition that’s been around for more than a century now.
On Saint Patrick’s Day Irish people decorate everything in green, the colour of their country. Ireland is also called “the green island”.
In New York City the Empire State Building has green lights.
