St. Patrick's Day

St Patrick’s Day is an official holiday in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador but it is not a public holiday in other parts of Canada. Schools, organizations, businesses, stores and post offices are open as usual. It remembers St Patrick, a missionary who converted many of Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity in the 5th century. His feast day also celebrates Irish culture.
