St. Patrick's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig; English: St.Patrick's Day) is a cultural and religious day held on March 17, which is the anniversary of the death of St. Patrick (A.D.385-461), while St. Patrick is Ireland's foremost Catholic saint.

St. Patrick's Day was established as an official Christian holiday in the early 17th century, established by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Church (especially the Church of Ireland), the Orthodox Church, and Lutheranism. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the advent of Christianity to Ireland, and celebrates Irish customs and culture, with celebrations generally involving public processions, community meetings, and wearing green clothing with shamrocks design. According to the customs of the Catholic Church, the end of Lent, which restricts food and alcohol, coincides with St. Patrick's Day, so alcohol consumption on this day would be increased.

St. Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Canada Newfoundland, Labrador, and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. Irish people scattered around the world, such as in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, also celebrate St. Patrick's Day in these countries more grandly than in other countries. The modern celebration was influenced by a large number of Irish immigrants, especially in the developed countries of North America.

An all-green t-shirt with Irish-related phrases such as "I'm Irish, kiss me!" Irish people over the age of ten are fine to wear. T-shirts with the names of Irish beers such as Harp or Guinness can also be worn.

For those looking to get extra festive, buy or make a green old dwarf costume with white stockings, a green high hat, and a fake red beard (really better).

If you still need to work on March 17th, get in the festive spirit by wearing a green shirt underneath your overalls. Try it with a green striped polo shirt, a tie with green shamrock dots, or green socks and green underwear.
