It is considered a national and bank holiday in Ireland and is observed internationally around the world. The festivities include parades, feasts, dancing, drinking and of course wearing green.
Want to know another crazy fact? The official color was not green at all, it was blue! In 1783 green was already taken after the Order of St. Patrick therefore, to stand out blue was the chosen color.
Green symbolizes the Ireland and is also thought to represent good luck. Be sure to wear plenty of green this March 17th before heading to your favorite bingo hall or entering an online site to get lucky!
