St. Patrick was a Christian missionary, bishop and a patron saint of Ireland. He died in A.D. 461 on March 17, which became St. Patrick’s Day. Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn as early as the 17th century. Legend has it that wearing green makes a person invisible to leprechauns that will pinch someone if they see them. According to folklore, St. Patrick used the shamrock, the familiar three-leafed clover, to explain the Christian Holy Trinity. the Irish beer Guinness remains a top St. Patty’s Day choice, but green beer became even more popular. It is just regular beer colored with food color. Many cities hold parades in honor of the holiday. The New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the largest parade in the world. It was first held in 1762. St. Patrick’s day became popular all over the world. The missionary who came to Ireland to teach Christianity centuries ago, didn’t even dream how popular he will became.
