Little hint of St. Patrick's Day:
Saint Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. St Patrick is credited with bringing christianity to Ireland. Most of what is known about him comes from his two works; the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and his Epistola, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish christians. 

why is it celebrated on March 17th? One theory is that that is the day that St. Patrick died. Since the holiday began in Ireland, it is believed that as the Irish spread out around the world, they took with them their history and celebrations. 

Saint Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck.

聖派翠克節小常識:
聖派翠克節(St. Patrick's Day)是愛爾蘭年度最盛大的節日,以往在每年的317日會以遊城的方式在全國的城鄉間慶祝,如今被嗜愛音
樂的愛爾蘭人民擴大為4天的嘉年華會,聖派翠克節遊街的傳統儀式仍被保存,同時加入了具有藝術、文化和娛樂價值的各式活動。

三月十七日,紀念愛爾蘭的守護神St. Patrick的忌日,他原是羅馬人,他的童年十分悲慘,曾被綁架後賣到農家當奴隸,十六歲時被海盜抓
去愛爾蘭作奴隸,終日和羊群在山邊過生活,不過因此造就他與神蹟接觸的領悟力。六年之後逃脫至法國讀宗教,繼而成為修道士。在法
國當上主教,聖派翠克晚年回到愛爾蘭的國土繼續傳教,其最令人稱奇的神蹟是將愛爾蘭境內的蛇消除。

St. Patrick以酢漿草解釋三位一體(父、子、聖靈的結合),愛裔美人在這天以綠色及酢漿草形狀為服飾,參加遊行、舉辦餐會、上教堂。
甚至芝加哥河都染成綠色。
