Save the Water, Make the Wine!

The History of Saint Patrick’s Day

Why do we drink anyway?

Anyone with even a cursory knowledge of St. Patrick’s Day is aware of the fact that the celebration is inexorably tied to the excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages. While some may believe that this is just another example of lively individuals taking advantage of a celebration, there is actually a solid reason why alcohol has long been a part of the holiday that is now celebrated worldwide.

The St. Patrick’s Day tradition began as a feast day held in honour of St. Patrick on the anniversary of the day he died. Christians are allowed to put aside their Lenten restrictions on food and alcohol consumption on this day, which is why excessive drinking has become so permanently linked to the celebration. Eventually, the feast day evolved into a greater celebration including not only St. Patrick, but also Irish culture, history, and traditions.
