3.The color of St. Patrick’s Day was originally blue.
Wearing green has become a staple of St. Patrick’s Day, but the holiday was originally associated with the color blue. It’s thought that the shift to green happened because of Ireland’s nickname “The Emerald Isle,” the green in the Irish flag and the shamrock, or clover. Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn as early as the 17th century

4.Despite his Irish notoriety, Saint Patrick was British. He was born to Roman parents in Scotland or Wales in the late fourth century.

5.Saint Patrick was born “Maewyn Succat” but changed his name to “Patricius” after becoming a priest.

6.Legend says that each leaf of the clover has a meaning: Hope, Faith, Love and Luck.
