Do you know the origins of your favorite holiday? Assuming your favorite holiday is, in fact, St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a quick history lesson:
“The day is generally characterized by the attendance of church services, wearing of green attire and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating, and drinking alcohol which is often proscribed during the rest of the season.”
“Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others. Today, St. Patrick's Day is probably the most widely celebrated saint's day in the world.” (via Wikipedia)
Now that you are reacquainted with the origin of this festive saint’s holiday, it’s time to get busy coordinating your celebratory green outfit to match your green beer!
