What is St. Patrick's Day?

Saint Patrick's Day celebrates Saint Patrick (386-493), the patron saint of Ireland. It is a national holiday in the Republic of Ireland (and a bank holiday in Northern Ireland), and is celebrated worldwide by Irish people and increasingly by many of non-Irish descent.

Celebrations are generally themed around all things green and Irish; both Christians and non-Christians celebrate the secular version of the holiday by wearing green, eating Irish food and drinking Irish drinks (lager dyed green, Irish beer such as Murphys, Smithwicks, Harp or Guinness, or Irish whiskey, Irish Cider, Irish Coffee or Baileys Irish Cream), and attending parades.
