I remember hearing that St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland. Turns out, they weren’t real snakes. Ireland never had any snakes. The pagans used to worshiped serpent symbols. St. Patrick was a Christian missionary. The snakes being driven out of Ireland was symbolic for putting an end to the pagan practice.
Do you know why the clover is a symbol of St. Patrick’s day? St. Patrick used the three leaf clover to explain the Trinity. Pretty cool.

Corned Beef and cabbage is a traditional dish to eat on St. Patrick’s day. While we don’t usually eat corned beef, we do like cooked cabbage. I also think I am going to make Boxty for supper on St. Patrick’s Day. Pretty sure my family will love it!
