What Do You Know About St. Patrick?

Do they know why they're celebrating?

At Busted Halo we believe everybody has a halo, some are just a little more busted than others.

This St. Patrick’s Day, we’re hitting the streets to see whose faith trivia halo is nicely polished, and whose is a little less shiny.

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, and is the traditional religious feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The Irish have observed St. Patrick’s Day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick’s Day, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon.

Today, people of all backgrounds around the world recognize St. Patrick’s Day, but even though they’re celebrating, it’s questionable how many know what the celebration is about.
