From Religious Roots to Global Celebration: All About St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day, a day honoring Ireland's patron saint, is a global celebration.

The day is most popular in the United States, where Irish immigrants turned it into a cultural celebration.

St. Patrick himself wasn't even Irish, but a missionary who brought Christianity to Ireland.

While Ireland observed the day religiously, America turned it into a lively parade and party day.

The iconic St. Patrick's Day symbols include the shamrock and the rarer four-leaf clover.

Finding a four-leaf clover is considered lucky because of a genetic mutation.

So, this St. Patrick's Day, raise a glass and celebrate Irish heritage!
