Site Index/Glossary > St. Patricks Day
St. Patricks DayA holiday occurring annually on March 17th. It's the Roman Catholic feast day which celebrates St. Patrick (387-461), the patron saint of Ireland. Once celebrated only by the Irish, it is now celebrated by anyone who likes a good holiday. Today, we celebrate by wearing green and attempting to drink as much alcohol as the Irish are known to drink.
If you're of a mind to eat like a real Irishman on St. Patrick's Day, bring a big appetite. A traditional breakfast (often referred to as a "Fry") in Ireland can be huge, often consisting of eggs, bacon and/or sausage, grilled tomatoes, baked beans, black and/or white pudding (see recipes below) and brown bread with sweet butter and preserves.
Interestingly, do you know why there are there so few Irish lawyers? The majority of them can't pass the bar!
