On St. Patrick’s Day, Irish families traditionally attend church in morning and a celebration is done in afternoon. People would dance, drink and feast, on traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage. With that millions of people go green and celebrate this Irish festival with parades, good cheer, and perhaps a pint of green beer. On this day children of Ireland have a tradition of pinching their friends who don’t wear green on this day. Sounds interesting!!

Its a holiday that once began as Christian feast day, and now it has become a celebration of all things Irish and green-tinged festivites that occur in cities around the world. Because of its popularity, St Patrick’s Day is now celebrated around the world as a day when EVERYTHING GOES GREEN!!

Do you know, why people wear Green on St Patricks Day and why Shamrock is so much popular specially for this day? Well! According to a legend, Saint Patrick used shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain Holy Trinity to pre-Christian Irish people. That’s the reason, why people go Green on St Patricks Day. So enjoy this day as your best St Patrick’s Day with your family and friends, as you have ever enjoyed it before by adding some values to it!

St Patrick is also reputed to have driven all the snakes out of the island of Ireland. The secret of how it happened can now be revealed here http://wp.me/pDjed-eT
Either way, for whatever reason, snakes do not naturally occur in Ireland.
