St. Patricks' Day or the Feast of St. Patrick is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on March 17. 

It commemorates Saint Patrick (c. AD 387-461), the patron saint of Ireland and the arrival of
Christianity in Ireland.

The day is generally characterized by attending church services, the wearing of the green, public parades/processions and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol.

Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three leafed plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish.  The phrase "the wearing of the green," meaning to wear a shamrock on one's clothing, comes from a song of the same name.
