It's March 17th and time to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day....feeling extra lucky?

Saint Patrick was a Christian Missionary in Ireland in the years of the 400's! His legend grew, and by the time people were writing about him 1,300 years later they said he:
– banished all snakes from Ireland by sending them into the sea
– Grew a living tree from his walking staff
– Used the shamrock to illustrate the Christian idea of the holy trinity (father, son and holy spirit) with its 3 leaves.
Today, lots of other Irish myths have been rolled into the day and Ireland's rich culture is celebrated around the world with parades, food and drink.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
