St. Patrick’s Day is Monday, March 17th.
St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on March 17th. It is named after Saint Patrick the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. It was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, and many other churches.
Many people celebrate this with public parades and festivals. Almost everyone one wears green or shamrocks. This is an annual and national holiday. This St. Patrick’s Day is during Spring Break. So everyone will be home wearing all sorts of green.
If you forget to wear green on St. Patty’s day, don’t be surprised if you are pinched. In early American tradition that probably started in the 1700s. People believed that wearing green made you invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). Others began pinching those who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers!
