The 17 March is dyed green on the calendar, green as emerald island where the tradition originated, Ireland.
In that island, San Patricio Christianized the Irish in the V century, ended with the plague of snakes and used a shamrock to explain the mystery of the Trinity.
There are many traditions that are, like elves in top hats in charge of hiding a pot of gold coins behind the rainbow.
From 1776, New York held a parade in honor of all Irish emigrants.
From Canary Talegas we join the celebration in honor of St. Patrick with a corresponding Moneybag.
