St. Patrick's Day, Floriography and Four Leaf Clovers
According to legend, Saint Patrick used the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to Irish pagans.
Saint Patrick's Day, or the 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), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, cèilidhs, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.
The Four Leaf Clover signifies Good Luck . A common superstition holds that each of the clover's four leaves represents either faith, hope, love, or luck. The 15th century politician and author John Melton even wrote, "If a man walking in the fields find any four-leaved grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing." In other words, the four-leaf clover is quite the multi-purpose charm for good fortune.
