  • St. Patrick’s day became a national holiday in Ireland in 1903.
  • The word “Shamrock”  translated from Gaelic means young clover. 
  • St. Patrick’s given name at birth was Maewyn Succat.
  • St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th because St. Patrick died on March 17th 461AD.
  • Erin go Bragh translates to “Ireland forever.”
  • About 110 million people will celebrate tomorrow by wearing green, eating an Irish type meal, green bagels, and drinking green beer.
  • On the subject of beer.  Approximately 13 million pints of Guinness will be consumed on Monday.
  • About 34 million Americans are of Irish ancestry.
  • And, the color green is synonymous with St. Paddy’s Day because during the Irish Rebellion, wearing a clover was a sign to ward off the devil.
