Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick celebrates Ireland’s foremost iconic saint’s death day. The festivities honor the heritage and culture of the Irish. Traditionally on this day, the Lenten restrictions of eating and drinking alcohol were lifted, which is why modern celebrations generally involve delicious food and a stiff drink.
