St Patrick's Day celebration | SOHO Freehouse,Penang Road

Another back dated post.I have been caught up with few on-a-rush tasks recently and Im in the mid of planning something serious in my career. Definitely gonna update you guys when its all done.
Alright! Back to the topic of today's blog
The St Patrick's Day celebration
How much do you know about St Patrick's day 
''Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, "the Day of the Festival of Patrick"), 
is a cultural and religious holiday-celebrated annually on 17 March
the death date of the most commonly-recognized patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461).

I had my St Patrick's Day celebration this year at SOHO Freehouse, Penang Road

Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early seventeenth century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, as well as celebrating the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. 
Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. 

Christians also attend church services and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday's tradition of alcohol consumption.
Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of IrelandNorthern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and Montserrat
It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world; especially in Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.''
