Saint Patrick is the Apostle of Ireland. Saint Patrick was not Irish, but he is credited with bringing Christianity to the people of Ireland.
THE COLOR GREEN:
Wearing the color green is a St. Patrick’s Day tradition. Although Saint Patrick wore blue, the color green is recognized as a significant color for celebrations. Green is symbolic of the Shamrock and the green color of the landscape of Ireland. According to legends, Saint Patrick used the Shamrock to explain the Christian Holy Trinity.
Here is a short video with the history of why the color Green is associated with St. Patrick’s Day.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
