Tomorrow March 17th is Saint Patrick’s Day. It is a national holiday here in Ireland.
Each town and city will hold a parade show casing community organisations. Children involved with every pastime imaginable will march behind every type of band or music group.
Communities within the towns will parade celebrating the diversity and the commonality of the area.
It is amazing that Saint Patrick’ Day will be celebrated in so many parts of the world, with parades and even buildings going “green”.
For some the day will start with a religious ceremony. Saint Patrick is actually only one of the three patron saints of Ireland. The others being St Brigid and Saint Columcille.
The day itself has become known as Paddy’s Day however, it is a huge mistake to call it Patty’s Day.
No matter where you are can I wish you a very happy
Saint Patrick’s Day.
