Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

What is this all about really? Millions of people around the World celebrate Saint Patrick’s today but do most know why? Check out this video about it. It really tells the story.

Ps / this is a Pint friendly video / Cheers….


Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland),[4] the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland,[3] and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.[5] Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, cèilidhs, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.[6] Christians also attend church services[5][7] and historically the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, which encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.

Learn 60 ITALIAN HAND GESTURES with Marco

This video by Marco is one of the funniest videos I ever seen in this category.

Italians as you know can be a bit HOT and loud. And if that isn’t enough they (we) use our hands to make a point. If you aren’t Italian than all you see is a lot of hand gestures yes?

But Italians see is as clear as signing for the deaf.
