St Patricks Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Irelands patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century.
What Do People Do?
St Patricks Day is celebrated in many parts of the world, especially by Irish communities and organizations. Many people wear an item of green clothing on the day. Parties featuring Irish food and drinks that are dyed in green food color are part of this celebration. It is a time when children can indulge in sweets and adults can enjoy a pint of beer at a local pub. Many restaurants and pubs offer Irish food or drink, which include:
Irish brown bread.
Corned beef and cabbage.
Beef and Guinness pie.
Irish cream chocolate mousse cake.
Irish potato champ, also known as poundies, cally or pandy.
Irish potato soup.
In our school we celebrate this day every year by making posters and wearing green clothes.
