Since we are close to March 17th, I think it’s a good time to explain what Saint Patick’s Day consists of. Many people watch on TV the celebration of St. Patrick's Day in Ireland and New York mainly, but they don’t know what are their origins, why people celebrate it or why they wear green. And you? Do you know anything about this day?
