Happy St. Patrick's Day!St. Patrick's Day has always been a fun holiday for me. Growing up I remember opening my lunch in Elementary School and my mom had packed for me Granny Smith green apples, some kind of green dessert, and to top it off-green bread (no! not moldy! but did you know you buy bread that has been colored green?!) for my sandwich. It only happened once a year and I loved it and always looked forward to it.
But why green? I know we have usually associated the color green with Ireland already, but why?
After perusing the internet I found that St. Patrick's Day commentaries Christianity coming to Ireland and marks the death of Saint Patrick himself. I couldn't find an exact reason for the wearing of green other than green being already connected to Ireland with the flag and shamrocks. But! I did find that shamrocks are a big deal because Saint Patrick used shamrocks to explain the Trinity.
