Saint Patrick's Day, or Lá Fhéile Pádraig, is observed on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the patron saint of Ireland.
On St. Patrick's Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the "wearing of the green"). St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Christian Holy Trinity to the Pagan Irish.This story first appears in writing in 1726, though it may be older.
Today's St. Patrick's Day celebrations have been greatly influenced by the celebrations that developed among the Irish diaspora, especially in North America. Until the late 20th century, St Patrick's Day was often a bigger celebration among the diaspora than it was in Ireland. Now, it is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival.
