St. Patrick’s Day

I have to admit, I forgot it was St. Patrick’s Day. I got up, got ready, got my son ready and headed to school to drop him off. THEN, I realized it was St. Patrick’s Day and I nor my son were wearing green. Whoops! As I was walking in his school I noticed his shoe strings were green, so saved by the bell on that one. šŸ˜€
I was wondering how St. Patrick’s Day came about and why we’re served green beer?
Saint Patrick was a 5th-century Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrickā€™s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.
