Get Ready for St. Patrick's Day at Home or in the Classroom with These Fun Ideas!A little look back at the history... St. Patrick's Day has been a long celebrated day in Ireland (and in other parts of the world) in honor of St. Patrick, a man who spent his adult years as a priest, using the three leafed clover to teach of the trinity to his poly-theistic community. In the U.S., the special day is observed as a celebration of Irish and Irish American culture. From prominent displays of the color green, eating and drinking, religious observances, and numerous parades, people have always found a way to enjoy the day.
