St. Patrick's Day activities are guaranteed to be unique and exciting, just like New Orleans itself. People fill the streets of the city for the St. Patrick's Day parades, where people on floats toss beads, candy, and even cabbages to parade-goers. Make sure you wear something green, or you'll risk getting pinched by anyone who notices!

Like the king cake, St. Patrick's Day has religious historical roots. The feast day recognizes the anniversary of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Although he is patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick was born in England. When he was sixteen years old, he was kidnapped by a group of Irish raiders and sold into slavery. During this time, he turned to religion for solice, and became a devout Christian. After six years of slavery, he escaped and fled back to Britain. Once home, St. Patrick decided to become a priest. He was then told in a dream to return to Ireland as a missionary. Following the call, he went back to Ireland to help convert the Irish to Christianity. It is said that he used a three-leaf clover to explain the trinity to the Irish people. This is why shamrocks are so heavily associated with this celebration. St. Patrick's mission was successful, as he aided in a great shift to Christianity in Ireland.

Today, the Irish people honor his life on March 17th every year. Many non-Irish have also joined in on the celebration with St. Patrick's Day parades and activities, including baking and exchanging St. Patrick’s Day desserts and cakes.
