Lecturas en inglés: Saint Patrick’s Day
Many Irish people have moved from Ireland to the U.S. around two centuries ago. They brought the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day with them. St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday in Ireland, its origins were mostly religious but it has been changed in America.
Today in the United States people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green no matter how. Actually, if you don’t wear at least one small piece of cloth or paint, school children may nip you. The shamrock is known to be the most common symbol of this celebration. Due to the fact that the shamrock has three leaves, many years ago St. Patrick (a religious leader) used the shamrock to show the Irish people the Trinity (father, son and holy spirit). That’s why many people wear a shamrock design on this day because it is believed to bring good luck.
On this day many people also like going to bars and drinking beer. They tell jokes and have fun with friends and relatives. People who aren’t irish or don’t come from that country like to pretend they are Irish, as well. Some cities hold celebrate this day by holding parades. It’s not a very important holiday in the United States, but it is undoubtly funny for the people who want to enjoy it and like to part. It is very different from the celebration that the Irish people have back in their country.

Well, I went sightseeing – I went to the Red Square, I went to see a tenis match and of course, I went shopping. The second week I spent travelling around Saint Petesburg. I went to the Saint Isaacas Cathedral….
