St. Patrick’s Day! March 17
« on: March 11, 2009, 10:01:51 PM »
Saint Patrick's Day!

Colloquially St. Paddy's Day or Paddy's Day, is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick (circa 385–461 AD), one of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on March 17.

Many folk ask the question 'Why is the Shamrock the National Flower of Ireland ?' The reason is that St. Patrick used it to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagans.

But this Celtic holiday isn’t only celebrated on the Emerald Isle.

Russia is the land that inspired some of the greatest works of literature, from War and Peace to Crime and Punishment, the home of Vodka and the cradle of Communism. Once you’ve partied on Paddy’s Day head on to St Petersburg, the imperial home of the Russian Tsars.
