It is the date that Saint Patrick died. Saint Patrick is the man who is said to have introduced the catholic religion to Ireland. He tried to explain "the trinity" (3 people in the one god) with a three leafed plant called a shamrock. Hence the shamrock has significance for the day. Originally the day was important only in Ireland but because of the large numbers of Irish people who emigrated abroad and the colorfulness of the celebration the tradition spread around the world.

The feast day of the patron saint of ireland. Great because you get off school and/or work (in Ireland at least) and you have an excuse to swear a lot, drink a lot and be patriotic to the emerald isle. The parades are brilliant
Stupid if you're not actually irish, only pretending. You're not irish if your great great great granny emigrated from dublin in 1709. =
