St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland and therefore he is celebrated each year on March 17

Because when the Irish began immigrating to America, they became laborers, maids, servants, miners, policemen, firemen and other important occupations. They, representing mainly the Catholic church, also became very powerful politically. When they said they wanted to celebrate St Patrick's day, it was a done deal. Which is okay. The St Paddy's day parade in New York is great.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.
