St. Patrick's Day, or the Feast of St. Patrick is both a religious and cultural celebration held each year on March 17.
You don't have to be from Ireland or even have any connection to the UK or its people to enjoy the day. Almost everyone likes to be Irish on St. Patrick's Day or at least to take part in the celebrations.
Many will don their green clothing, beads, fake beards, drinking glasses and partake in various festivities from parades to parties and delicious meals of corned beef and cabbage.
Barefoot Landing may not be located on the mores in Ireland and there is no Belfast or Dublin, but we love observing this historical day.
