Saint Patrick's Day (Irish: Lá ’le Pádraig or Lá Fhéile Pádraig), colloquially St. Paddy's Day or Paddy's Day, is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick (circa AD 385–461), one of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on March 17.
Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated worldwide by the those of Irish descent and increasingly by non-Irish people (usually in New Zealand and North America). Celebrations are generally themed around all things Irish and, by association, the colour green. Both Christians and non-Christians celebrate the secular version of the holiday by wearing green, eating Irish food and/or green foods, imbibing Irish drink (such as Irish stout, Irish Whiskey or Irish Cream) and attending parades.
·"The Lord opened the understanding of my unbelieving heart, so that I should recall my sins." - - Saint Patrick
·"He was a terror to any snake that came in his path, whether it was the cold, slimy reptile sliding along the ground or the more dangerous snake that oppresses men through false teachings. And he drove the snakes out of the minds of men, snakes of superstition and brutality and cruelty." - - Arthur Brisbane
·"A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have." - - Author Unknown
·"May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door." - - Irish Blessing
·"You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was." - - Irish Proverb
·"A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." - - Irish Proverb
 Excellent
