Whether you are Irish or not, you've probably heard of Saint Patrick’s Day. But what is this holiday really about? Is it just a holiday where we can drink green beer and eat corned beef and cabbage or Irish stew? No, Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious celebration held on March 17th every year, which is the day that Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland died in 461 A.D. It was actually called the Feast of Saint Patrick but in this case, that has nothing to do with eating. According to Christian history, the Lent restrictions of eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for this day, which is why we suddenly feel the need to drink and eat a lot on this holiday.

What does Saint Patrick’s Day mean to you? Are you Irish or are you just fond of the Irish traditions? Do you long to go to Ireland someday because of the beauty and culture there?

Could it be that you just love the color green so much that you want your pooch to have a green-themed name? Those are all pretty good reasons for naming your dog a Saint Patrick’s Day name.
