Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day
March 23, 2023
It’s the legend of gold at the end of the rainbow with a plucky little man who might be caught. That’s right! St.Patrick’s day is here! The fun holiday is March 17.
“In my opinion, St. Patrick’s day is really fun. You can prank all sorts of people and you could get away with it!” fifth-grader Penny Stolfe said.
Not only can you prank people, but there are other traditions to celebrate this holiday, like “drowning” a shamrock, wearing green, and listening to bagpipes.
“My favorite parts of St. Patrick’s day are waking up to chocolate and setting traps for the Leprechaun that hopefully will work!” fifth-grader Maddy Downing told.
The legend of the Leprechaun goes back to the 700s. The word literally means “small person”. Leprechauns are thought to be generous if you are kind to them.
“Some things I really like about St. Patrick’s Day are the awesome color green, setting traps for the leprechaun of course, and him pranking us, like somehow making our toilet green!” fifth grader Evan Warren commented.
Without a doubt, St. Patrick’s day is a very loved and celebrated holiday that Villano students look forward to each year.
