St. Patrick’s Day is a great day to be Irish. So if you’re an Irish Bear, you put on your best green suit, the one with the shamrocks on the pocket, find your shamrock hanky and your shiny black tie, and go out to spread some Irish Luck! ♣ It’s even more fun when you gather a shamrock bouquet to share with a friend.

The shamrock, a symbol of Ireland, is a three-leafed old white clover, grown since ancient times. Legend has it that Saint Patrick made use of the clover to illustrate the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the three representations of one God. But the Oxford English Dictionary calls this “a late tradition”, first recorded in 1726. The posthumous timing of this legend (coming some 1,200 years after his death), and the lack of supporting evidence found in St. Patrick’s writings have caused some to question its authenticity.
