St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland so that's why they pick his feast day to celebrate being Irish. It is said that St. Patrick taught people about the Trinity by using the shamrock as an analogy of the three persons in one God. According to Wikipedia St. Patrick's color was original blue but it changed over to green. There are lots of parades and celebrations on March 17th, St. Patrick's Day.
Mom and me did some research on the phrase "the luck of the Irish" but didn't have much luck. Seems no one is really sure what it means. As a people, the Irish had some really bad luck. In fact most of the folks of Irish descent in this country came from Ireland because of the great potato famine. When they got to this country they weren't treated real well either. But, one thing that seems to be true is that no matter how bad things get, the Irish keep on going. Maybe they make their own luck!
My cat brofur and sisfurs got together and practiced a traditional Irish dance with me to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick Day. Poor Caesar had to dress up like a girl. He has nice legs though.
