HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY
Well, Happy St. Patrick's Day indeed to all of you around the globe who celebrate it!
No, we do not celebrate it in Greece, we don't have a St. Patrick-it is a catholic holiday- but I happen to know all about St. Patrick's day due to the fact that I spent about ten years in the USA as a student and working. I remember wearing green clothes and eating green candy and of course drinking plenty of green beer that made our tongues green, too.
I'll tell you what I know about St. Patrick in case some of you who read me are not familiar with the holiday (as I probably wouldn't if I hadn't lived in the USA).
It is said that St.Patrick was sent to Ireland to Christianise the Irish where he used a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity of God, hence the shamrock as a symbol/decoration for this day, as well as everything green. In Ireland he is considered a patron saint of the country and the festivities can last for days with concerts, parades and fireworks.
