Saint Patrick's Day commemorates Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. It was made an official feast day in the early 17th century, and has gradually become a secular celebration of Irish culture in general.

Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish Diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others.

Today, St. Patrick's Day is probably the most widely celebrated Saints day in the world.
