This weekend, we celebrate the most commonly recognised patron saint of Ireland, St Patrick. Over the years, St Patrick's Day has also become more of a celebration of Irish culture in general.
While the original colour associated with St Patrick was blue, we now think of green as we celebrate this day, wearing green ribbons, shamrocks and other green clothing in celebration.
