Thank you, TinGoat! :smile:

What about the date? What's the reason why it's celebrated on that date (and not any other)?

One Irish football player died and went to heaven. At the pearly gate he'd seen a saint with a long grey-haired beard and bunch of keys...
- Now tell me, my son, - said the saint - did you perform any good deeds to enter the Paradise?
- Hmmm... Ehh... I don't remember any. I've drunk hard, debauchered, scuffled...
But one day I've played for the St.Patrick college team against the English national team, and I scored three great goals!
- It's not enough. But... Ok, I'll turn away now and you can enter.
- Thank you, thank you, St.Peter!
- Sh-h! Saint Peter is on vacation. I am Saint Patrick.

You have exhausted my knowledge on the subject...

For more information, there's Google and Wikipedia...
