Tomorrow, Tuesday March the 17th marks Saint Patrick's Day, an event which is celebrated in many countries across the world. As well as celebrating the Irish saint, the day also commemorates the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Saint Patrick's Day celebrations are varied and take place in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Canada, the UK, the US, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand. Numerous public parades and festivals take place with many people wearing distinctive green articles of clothing with shamrock symbols as a means of paying homage to Irish culture and heritage. As Lenten restrictions on drinking alcohol come to an end on this date, Saint Patrick's Day has come to be synonymous with a general degree of booziness as well with the custom of consuming several pints of stout becoming common practice.
