St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated every year on March 17 to commemorate the Irish culture and celebrate the death anniversary of one of Ireland’s patron saints named Saint Patrick.
The day is associated with the color green after the shamrock became the national symbol of Ireland in the 18th century.
Here are five green foods you can make on this day.
