Saint Patrick's Day is generally celebrated on 17th of March. It is believed that this date is the day that St. Patrick died. While in most of the countries with Irish communities it is a day full of fun, in Ireland it is also a religious celebration and public holiday. Many Irish attend mass, before the serious celebrating begins. Many parades, festivals, concerts and traditional games are held to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day.
