Irish Culture on Saint Patrick's day !

from website: http://nierocks.areavoices.com/2013/03/11/st-patricks-day/

St Patrick is one of Ireland's patron saints and many Americans with Irish ancestry remember him on March 17.
It is a public holiday in Northern Ireland.

The most common St Patrick's Day symbol is the shamrock or four-leaf clover. 
This plant is associated with good luck. 

Other typical things to highlight the celebration:
* Almost everything coloured in green as we can see in this lovely video:
  


* Green beer

* Green wear

Other Irish-related symbols seen on St Patrick’s Day include the harp, which was used in Ireland for centuries, as well as the leprechaun and a pot of gold that the leprechaun hides.
On March 17th there are parades and the most famous ones are in Dublin (Ireland) and New York (The USA) , where many Irish descendants live.
