Happy St. Patrick's Day

Just wanted to wish you all a great St. Patrick's Day. If you aren't familiar with St. Patrick, he is known as the patron saint of Ireland. True, he was not a born Irish, but he has become an integral part of the Irish heritage, mostly through his service across Ireland of the 5th century.

He died on March 17, AD 461. That day has been commemorated as St. Patrick's Day ever since. The day's spirit is to celebrate the universal baptization of Ireland. Though originally a Catholic holiday, St. Patrick's Day has evolved into more of a secular holiday-Or, rather, 'be an Irish Day ', and the Irish has intergrated it as part of their national tradition everywhere they populated and prospered.
