Many people will use the day as "an excuse to attend a parade, visit an Irish pub, drink a Guinness, or maybe even dye a well-known river green", said USA Today, but St Patrick's Day has a long history as a holiday in Ireland. 

While traditionally a "solemn and religious day", St Patrick's Day has now become an opportunity to celebrate Irish culture in wider ways. Many will take this as a chance to share food and drink with one another. The Week has compiled some recipes inspired by the day that you could try.
