Today the Irish and British celebrate St Patricks Day. St Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is believed to be the man who took Christianity to Ireland back in the 5th Century. Despite its religious connotations, St Patricks day is now celebrated with more fun and frivolity than as a religious day. People tend go out dancing and have a good time fuelled by the world famous Irish Beer, Guinness. Fancy dress is also the order of the day with people wearing green especially dressed as Leprechauns, a traditional Irish Folk Figure.
