Now, let me de-bunk one of the most prolific myths associated with St Patrick’s Day. The colour green.
Has green always been historically been associated with St. Patrick’s Day?
The Irish countryside may be many shades of green, but knights in the Order of St. Patrick wore a color known as St. Patrick’s blue. Why did green become so emblematic of St. Patrick that people began drinking green beer, wearing green and, of course, dyeing the Chicago River green to mark the holiday he inspired? The association probably dates back to the 18th century, when supporters of Irish independence used the color to represent their cause.
