Saint Patrick's Day

 

St. Patrick's Day is March 17th.  It is originally an Irish Holiday, but is widely celebrated in American, regardless of one's ancestry.  To the Irish, it is a day to commemorate the Patron Saint of Ireland, namely St. Patrick.  To the rest of us, it is a day to celebrate the Irish traditions and culture which are a big part of what all Americans still know and do.  For example, all children wear green on St. Patrick's Day for good luck.  If you don't wear green, beware!  You might get pinched by someone else, usually by a friend or someone you know.  It's a kind of playful punishment for not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day.

Superstitions

There are several superstitions associated with St. Patrick's Day.  One superstition deals with Leprechauns (see picture below).  Leprechauns are little men (about as tall as a pencil) who live in the mountains of Ireland.  If you can catch one, he will give you a pot of gold for his release.

 

Another superstition is that the music of the Leprechauns is very bewitching to anyone who might by chance hear it.

 

A third superstition is that if one finds a four leaf clover, and keeps it with him/her, then that person will have very good luck.
