St. Patrick’s Day
St.Patrick’s Day originated as a Catholic holiday and became an official feast day in the early 17th century. It has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Irish culture.
It is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and Montserrat, among others.
In Argentina people celebrate through the night on the streets as the weather is relatively mild in March. In North America one of the longest-running Saint Patrick’s Day parades occurs each year in Montreal who’s flag, astonishingly, has a shamrock in one of its corners. In the USA, the white house has dyed its fountain water green for the last two years, also Chicago dyes its river green for the occasion. Japan, New Zealand and South Korea also widely celebrate this festive occasion.
