St Patrick's Day 17th of March
Commemorating the death of St Patrick in the 5th century, falling in the middle of Lent where traditionally people give up certain things, a break form Lenten obligations were relaxed on this day.
Judging how America and Ireland celebrate this day, its a good job that Lent was relaxed for one day.
Its great that everyone get to have a great party day perhaps a shame that St George's day is not a bit more of a party, of course we tend to wear red roses but not aware of too much of a knees up.
We of course have a great selection of lucky four leaf clovers and traditional shamrocks on www.topbananaantiques.com too.
