St. Patty’s Day Around the World


St. Patrick’s Day is a day to commemorate Saint Patrick who was kidnapped as a teenager to become a slave in Ireland. He was told in a dream to flee from captivity and become a priest in Britain. Later in life he was called back to Ireland to convert the natives to Christianity. He often used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. Today, March 17th is celebrated by masses all around the world!

Argentina: Argentinians celebrate the holiday with all-night parties. 50,000 people turn out for the celebrations in the streets of downtown Buenos Aires, where there are several Irish pubs.

Canada: The Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team was known as the Toronto St. Patricks until 1927. Occasionally, the team will bring out retro green jerseys.

United States: On the homefront, even though St. Patrick’s day is not recognized as a legal holiday, it is still celebrated throughout the entire country. Parades have been held since 1766. That’s 247 years of parades!
