12 Amazing St. Patrick’s Day Stories To Put A Little Irish Jig Into Your Day

| Right | March 17, 2021

Dear readers,

Today is St. Patrick’s Day! First recognized by the Catholic Church way back in 1631, this holiday honoring Ireland’s most beloved patron saint has… evolved… somewhat. Perhaps “escalated” is a better word? Historically, as it was a religious holiday, pubs in Ireland were ordered to be closed on St. Patrick’s Day.

In modern times, however, things are quite different. In the college town where I grew up, the university actually started scheduling Spring Break for the week of March 17th, knowing full well that its students would be pounding all the green beer they could stomach (and some they couldn’t) – and hoping against hope that they’d go do it somewhere else.

Today, we’ve rounded up 12 stories about St. Patrick’s Day. Whether you’re Catholic or Irish or just look smashing in green, we hope you and enjoy – and stay safe!
