They say everyone in the world is Irish for one day every year, and that’s just the beginning of the fun associated with St. Patrick’s Day! This March 17th, regardless of where in the world you were born, you can indulge in green beer, dine on corned beef and cabbage, don emerald green, search for a four-leaf clover and even chase rainbows for that elusive pot of gold!
That’s what you know about St. Patrick’s Day, but there’s a heck of a lot more you might not know about this special Irish holiday! Did you know…
…that for every 10,000 clovers, only one will be that magical four-leaf clover? It’s true!
…that the Guinness Book of World Records reports the largest number of leaves on any one clover is a whopping 14? That’s a whole lotta luck, and it’s true!
…that the four leaves of the clover symbolize hope, faith, love and luck? It’s true!
…that the green color of the Irish flag symbolizes the people of the south, the orange color symbolizes the people of the north, and the white symbolizes the peace that brings them together? It’s true!
…most leprechauns are a mere two feet tall? It’s true (or, so legend has it)!
…that each leprechaun’s pot of gold contains one gold coin for each year of their life? And leprechauns are known to live a very long time! It’s true (again, according to legend)!
…that leprechans are always male? Apparently, there’s no such thing as women’s lib in the leprechaun world! It’s true (or, so all of the male leprechauns say)!
