Well, what’s not to love, regardless of any real Irish roots, it’s always guaranteed to be a fun celebration of everything Irish, which no doubt includes some great music and a few pints of Guinness! It’s definitely one of the more interesting Christian feast days. Have you ever wondered why it is that it’s more or less compulsory to drink alcohol on St Patrick’s Day? Well it’s because the restrictions of Lent are lifted, just for that day, so you can imagine, if you haven’t had a drink in a while, everyone is going to be rushing to the pub, so it’s become something of a tradition. Head out on St Patrick’s Day and you’ll find something going on in most major towns and cities. Manchester even has a two week Irish Festival in the lead up to St Patrick’s Day. Visit London or Birmingham and you can watch the St Patrick’s Day parade. You’ll find public buildings lit up green, water features and even the beer dyed green for the festivities. For those that like to know why we do these things, the green colour that we associate with St Patrick’s Day comes from the green of the shamrock, which represents the holy trinity as it has three leaves.
