In case you were wondering about the whole switch from blue to green deal, it has to do with the shamrock, the 1798 Irish rebellion, and the general greenness of Ireland. St. Patrick used the clover to explain the holy trinity; soldiers of the Irish rebellion wore green uniforms instead of wearing a shamrock on their lapels; and foreign nations celebrating St.Patty’s day identify Ireland with the color green. Who cares, right? With all these fantastic apps on your mobile device, you’ll be able to do what’s really important on Saint Patrick’s day – serious partying.
