St. Patrick's Day
Many customs are observed on St. Patrick's Day. Everyone wears shamrock and send it to their friends in America and other places. On that day in years gone by people used burn a hazel rod and the head of the family marked the sign of the cross on each persons arm. This was because St. Patrick put the serpent out of Ireland with a hazel rod.
