March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day is the worldwide celebration of Irish culture and the observance of St. Patrick’s Day of death. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland.

Just like myself, there are over 30 million people in the United States that have Irish ancestry, but it doesn’t matter if you have Irish ancestry or not you can still participate in the revelry and shenanigans of St Patrick’s Day. For instance, it is a common practice to pinch someone that is not wearing green on March 17th. Which brings up the question as to why do we pinch someone not wearing green? Wearing green on March 17th makes you invisible to the leprechaun fairies that would pinch you for not wearing green, so as helpful Americans we will pinch you for not wearing green on March 17th to help out the leprechauns and remind you that they’ll do it if we don’t. Other ways to celebrate St Patrick’s Day is to find an establishment where you could enjoy a nice Irish beer or even a wonderful Irish whiskey.

I certainly encourage you to enjoy yourself in moderation. There are many other ways to observe St Patrick’s day, you could probably find a restaurant serving green items like Green eggs and Ham. If you are curious about more information on St Patrick’s Day you can certainly do some research of your own about St Patrick’s day.
