I love St.Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day is on my birthday. This is why I love St. Patrick’s Day.┬áIn America we celebrate by wearing green.

St. Patrick’s day is from Ireland. It is celebrated on March 17th, the day St. Patrick died. It is a Catholic holiday.

The holiday honours St. Patrick. He is the patron saint of Ireland. Irish myth claims St. Patrick banished snakes from Ireland. In reality St. Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland.

This is why St. Patrick’s day is my favourite holiday. I like wearing green. It’s so fun having everyone celebrate on my birthday.
