In America we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with parades and the Wearin’ O’ the Green. However, many of us do not know why! Take a virtual journey to Ireland to learn more about its mystical isles, patron saint, fairies and folklore. Pin on a shamrock and join us as we discover how these traditions emigrated from Ireland to America.
