Many of us celebrate this day and dress up in green with good luck charms, but do we really know why?
Muchos celebramos este día y vestimos de verde con símbolos de buena suerte, pero sabemos en realidad porque?

Being so close to Ireland (I live in Scotland) I was curious to know a bit more. Saint Patrick was the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland who is credited with bringing christianity to Ireland. It is said that Saint Patrick died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland, on March 17, 460 A.D.
Estando tan cerca de Irlanda (yo vivo en Escocia) estaba curiosa de aprender un poco mas sobre esto. San Patricio era el apóstol de Irlanda, a el se le acredita llevar el cristianismo a Irlanda. Dicen que San Patricio murió en Saul, Irlanda el 17 de Marzo, 460 A.D.

Saint Patrick’s day is celebrated on March 17 to commemorate his death.
El día de San Patricio se celebra el 17 de Marzo en honor a este santo.

Today this holiday has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck. But the most important thing about this holiday it’s religious meaning.
Hoy en día esta festividad se asocia con todo lo Irlandés: el color verde y dorado, la buena suerte, los tréboles y duendes. Pero lo mas importante es el significado espiritual de este día.

Irish people are very routed to their history, it is believed that as the Irish spread out around the world and took with them their history and celebrations.
Los Irlandeses son muy arraigados a su historia y celebraciones, es por eso que los Irlandeses al esparcirse por el mundo llevaron consigo esta gran celebración.

In many American cities with a large Irish population, St. Patrick's Day is a very big deal. Big cities and small towns alike celebrate with parades, music and songs, Irish food and drink and of course wearing of the green and good luck charms.
En ciudades de los Estados Unidos con una gran población Irlandesa, el día de San Patricio es muy importante. Las grandes y pequeñas ciudades celebran con paradas, música, comida y bebida Irlandesa y por su puesto llevando el color verde y cualquier símbolo de buena suerte.
