A saint who Christianized Ireland leading to another wave of Christian evangelists who would go on to Christianize most of Europe.
Saint Patrick is the reason that Ireland remembers the shamrock and changed from a group of pagan Celts to the Irish we know today.

St Patrick's day is held on March 17th.
It is the date that Saint Patrick died. Saint Patrick is the man who is said to have introduced the catholic religion to Ireland. He tried to explain "the trinity" (3 people in the one god) with a three leafed plant called a shamrock. Hence the shamrock has significance for the day. Originally the day was important only in Ireland but because of the large numbers of Irish people who emigrated abroad and the colorfulness of the celebration the tradition spread around the world.
In Ireland St. Patrick's day is celebrated with a parade of floats, bands and marchers in each towns main street. Unfortunately because of the time of the year it invariably rains on the day.

A day when you gather around a keg of Guinness and drink like there's no tomorrow.
Bill Lumbergh: "Yeah, and I'd like to remind you that tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, so if you'd like to, you can go ahead and come to work...uh...shit-faced. Yeah, that'd be greeaat."

March 17th
two days after the Ides of March

In america this Holiday is a.k.a. the "Wearin o' the Green" day.

It's a day for parades that celebrate Ireland or being of Irish heritage.

Some pubs dye ther beer or anything else green with food coloring. It is too bad because Certain foods, like eggs, when dyed green, look incredibly puke-inducing.
