St. Patrick was a christian missionary who taught the people of Ireland about religion, in his teaching process he used a three leaf clover to simbolice the holy trinity, and now it is an official Irish symbol.
There is a legend which says that St. Patrick took all the snakes out of Ireland, so people also celebrates that, but that’s just a legend.
Although this is an Irish celebration, St. Patrick’s also takes place in other places, like United States, where it is a huge party.
The main reason of it being celebrated on U.S.A. is because of all the Irish people living there.
In a lot of places, like London, Egypt, Italy or China, they turn green some of their monuments, they turn green the London Eye, the great pyramids, the Great Wall, the Coliseum…
