St Patrick Day

Yesterday, it was the 17th March: the Saint Patrick's day ! 

Saint Patrick is the saint patron of Irland and so the 17th March is a cristian holiday in Ireland. Saint Patrick is the saint patron of Ireland because it is the evangelizer of Ireland. Indeed, he explains to the Irish the concept of the Trinity with a clovern, which is the symbol of the country. It is at this moment that Saint Patrick chased all the snakes of the country. Snakes represented Satan and so the ignorance of the real God. 

During this day, there is a parade in a lot of cities. The biggest parade is in New York. 

I was in Galway for this day. The parade was very nice : all the children assocation of Galway paraded and showed their colour and what they do. There were music. 

There was a lot of people, so me and my friends had to wake up early for have a chance to see the parade. We were all wearing green clothes and some accesories like hat or irish flags. 

After we went in a pub for watch the rugby match : Ireland VS England. 

There were a lot of people in all the pub but the ambiance was very nice. 

I am really to have celebrated the Saint Patrick in Ireland, it is a big day for them and it was very nice to discover this ambiance.
