According to legend, Saint Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish people.
Today, Saint Patrick's Day is widely celebrated in America by Irish and non-Irish alike. Many people, regardless of ethnic background, wear green or orange-colored clothing and items. Traditionally, those who are caught not wearing green are pinched affectionately. I've got my lucky Shamrock pendant on for protection.
