Most of us associate Saint Patrick’s Day with green beer, leprechauns, pots of gold, shamrock’s, and a chance to let go and party. So here is a bit of information about this day that you may not have known.

St. Patrick’s Day started as a small, religious holiday in Ireland. And believe it or not, for the first nearly six decades, bars had to stay closed because the holiday falls during Lent. The law was lifted in 1961; and now, 13 million pints of Guinness are sold around the world on March 17th.

Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland.  He is credited with bringing Christianity to the Irish.

  • He lived in the 5th century, which is like 16 centuries ago.
  • The shamrock became part of the celebration, when it was said that Saint Patrick would use them to describe the Holy Trinity to children.

Here are several infographics I found that share all kinds of awesome stuff about all things Irish and green.
