“The day of the festival of Patrick” is a cultural and religious celebration that is recognized around the world since the 17th century. The drinking myth goes back to the fact that Lent restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted during church services, which has encouraged and propagated the holidays tradition of alcohol consumption.
