St. Patrick's Day (Ireland)

St. Patrick's Day is a public holiday in Ireland, and it is observed on March 17 each year.

St. Patrick's Day is a holiday in memory of Saint Patrick, a fifth century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. He brought Christianity to Irish people in the fifth century and is considered as the founder of Christianity in Ireland.

The Irish pirates captured him when he was about 16, and brought him to Ireland as a slave taking care of sheep. He had a dream from God asking him leave Ireland when he was 22. He managed to run away from Ireland and reunited with families in Britain.

A few years after, he had a vision asking him go back Ireland, and he returned as a Christian missionary after studying for the preisthood. He spent 40 years converted all people in Ireland, and he died on March 17, 461.

Saint Patrick's Day is holiday with the green color, and it is customary to wear green clothing or green accessories.
