St Patrick’s Day in Dubai

On Thursday March 17th, the Irish celebrate St-Patrick’s Day joined by many others across the globe. As early as the 17th century, the Irish have been wearing green ribbons and shamrocks on this day. It is said that Saint Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish, and since then, the shamrock has been the main symbol of St-Patrick’s Day.

These days, St-Patrick’s Day is celebrated by people from all over the world from as far as Australia to North-America. Some of the biggest St-Paddy’s Day parades can be found in Canada and the United-States; both countries are home to many with an Irish heritage. Most Irish Pubs across the globe will be celebrating tonight.
