Why Do Americans Celebrate St. Patrick's Day? (May 2019).
Unnoticed by St. Patrick 's Day, which was recently only Irish, has also come into our everyday life. For several years in a row on March 17 in Russia, everyone becomes an Irishman and joins the celebration. Catholics honor St. Patrick, who became the guardian of Ireland, because he saved her from paganism and drove the snakes. And everyone who just wants to have fun, notes another spring excuse to relax and rest.
