Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick (IrishLá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”) is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland.

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early seventeenth century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially theChurch of Ireland),[2] the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland,[1] as well as celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.[3] Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.[4]Christians also attend church services[3][5] and the Lenten restrictions on eating anddrinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.[3][4][6][7]

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,[8] Northern Ireland,[9]Newfoundland and Labrador and Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world; especially in Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.
