Why People Wear Green on St. Patrick's Day
Posted by Auto Api on
Ever wondered why every year on March 17th, people go out wearing green clothes, tall hats, and crazy glasses? Some people go to the extremes and even dye their hair green.
The date March 17 is the day when Ireland celebrates their patron saint, St. Patrick. The celebration is held to commemorate the death of Ireland's foremost patron saint. Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by both Protestant and Catholic churches today. St Patrick used a shamrock to explain the holy trinity the 3 leaves represented the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The 3 leaves also represent faith, hope, and love.
So, why green?
There were some accounts that the first colour associated with St. Patricks's day was blue and gradually changed to green in the 17th century. One of the main reasons for the change in colour was due to Ireland's nickname "The Emerald Isle", because of the country's lush green landscape. Another reason for the colour change is the fact that Ireland's flag has the colour green in it. Add the colour of the shamrock, and you found yourself the best colour. GREEN!
