Do you believe in leprechauns? Well, some people do believe in these Irish fairies, who are often seen as small old men with cocked hats and leather apron. Leprechauns are an important symbol associated with Saint Patrick’s Day. Every year on March 17, people around the globe (mostly Irish) celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day began in the early 17th century as the traditional religious feast day for Saint Patrick. St. Patrick was the foremost patron saint of Ireland, and was beloved by many Irish. He had many exaggerating stories, legends, and myths associated with him. The Irish have celebrated the holiday for thousands of years, and today, people all over the world celebrate this international festival with parades, dancing, special Irish dishes, and a whole lot of green. Additionally, a unique tradition in Chicago is to dye the Chicago River green for St. Patrick’s Day. Today, millions of people worldwide celebrate this holiday with different traditions that branched down from the Irish.
