Although St. Patrick’s Day started as a religious holiday that commemorated Saint Patrick, probably the most recognized patron saint of Ireland, it has become a world wide celebration. As a religious event, it is observed by the Catholic, Lutheran and Orthodox Church, as well as the Church of Ireland and the Anglican Communion.
Green for A Different Reason
As the Irish moved from Ireland to Europe and the world, specifically the US, St. Patrick’s Day became a celebration of their culture. While Saint Patrick was originally associated with blue, green has become the mark of the holiday, with green ribbons, shirts and other clothing worn by people on March 17th. While the Irish celebrate St. Patrick’s in a big way, people across the world end up celebrating it as well – with bands having concerts dedicated to Irish music:
