ST.PATRICK´S DAY (a little bit late)

St Patrick is the patron Saint of Ireland.He is celebrated all around the world on 17th  March.This day is a holiday in Ireland and it is a tradition to wear green.
The national emblem of Ireland is the shamrock. Patrick used a shamrock to explain how the Trinity of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit could exist as separate parts of the same being. His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on this day.
St Patrick is celebrated with parades in the large cities and wearing green  The tradition also says that those who do not wear green on this day will be pinched so be careful next year and don´t forget to wear something green  !!!

The cross of St Patrick is part of the UK (United Kingdom) flag, this flag has a name, its name is the Union Jack but we will talk about it other day.
