St. Patrick’s Day is this week and many people already celebrated over the weekend. This is the day when the Irish and the Irish-at-heart, wander around in all manner of green clothing. Some even go so far as to turning their hair green for the event.
In the mid-400’s, St. Patrick was captured in Wales or Scotland or some other area outside of Ireland. He was taken to Ireland as a slave. He escaped about six years later and returned home. Eventually, he decided to return to Ireland as a missionary.
Nevertheless it’s a good day to wear green, tell jokes and eat. Here are a few jokes to help you enjoy this special day!
