Erin go Bragh!! Happy Birthday Jimmie!!
So who is Saint Patrick, why do we wear green....
Saint Patrick was born in Roman Britain and was told by God to go to Ireland to Christianise them. He is credited as the principal champion of Christianity in Ireland.
The original color associated with Saint Patrick was blue, but he used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. Green ribbons and shamrocks have been worn as far back as the 17th century.
Nothing like a little history to get your ready to drink some Guinness. So get your green on, go out and celebrate and for today be an Irishman!!
