O Dia de St. Patrick é celebrated in many parts of the world.  Reza a lenda que este Saint escondeu a Ireland das snakes. Porém, neste caso, ‘snakes’ represent druidas e pagãos em geral que ‘desviavam’ as people da religião Catholic.

St. Patrick faleceu aos March 17 e por isso a Catholic Church adotou esta date to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

 Today, nos countries com forte presença de Irish immigrants (like Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the USA) many people aproveitam este holiday para resgatar Irish traditions. They vestem roupas green and:

* Eat cream chocolate mousse cake, typical da Ireland

* Eat potato soup

* Drink Irish coffee

E muitas outras foods and drinks typical da Ireland – todas pintadas de green! Tudo para lembrar o shamrock, symbol deste holiday e amulet  para os que almejam ter good luck.
