It is worth noting the symbols used to identify this traditional festival. The tradition of wearing green on St. Patrick’s day began with the habit of using attached to clothing, a Shamrock similar to what the Holy bears. Irish folklore tells that this clover represents the Holy Trinity, doctrine which professes the God in three distinct persons: Father, Son and holy spirit. The clover for being green and represent good luck, has become a symbol of patriotism the country Catholic.

The Elf probably has come from Celtic folklore. Known as little man, jacket, Green Hat and a long Red Beard, does everything to protect your hidden treasure at the end of a rainbow. The Celtic Cross, another symbol of the party, had your source when St. Patrick’s day Celtic Irish Christians trying to convert, decided to join the Sun (strong Irish symbol) with the cross of Christianity.
