St. Patrick’s Day Fun Facts
St. Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17 because that is the feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. One of the funniest facts about St. Patrick's Day is that St. Patrick, who died in the 5th century, wasn't Irish---he was born in Britain!
St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday in Ireland.
According to Sean Markey of National Geographic, "By law, pubs in Ireland were closed on St. Patrick's Day, a national religious holiday, as recently as the 1970s."
People originally wore green to illustrate the promotion of Ireland otherwise known as "The Green Isle". If you don’t wear green, then you can be pinched, although no one knows where that tradition came from!
In Chicago, the Chicago River is dyed green with a special dye that only lasts a few hours.
The name “lephrechaun” has several origins. It could be from the Irish Gaelic word “leipreachan,” which means “a kind of aqueous sprite.” Or, it could be from “leath bhrogan,” which means “shoemaker.”
It’s suggested there are about 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every lucky four-leaf clover. Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Vail Cascade Resort!
