Grumpy cat ate a leprechaun…

Who was he ? A Roman English of the 4th century who converted the Irish people to christianity, and thus ended the pagan or Celtic religion. Before Saint Patrick, Irish people believed in faeries and practised magic, after Saint Patrick, well, they still did, but they went to church and gradually became very faithful to catholicism.

Traditionnally, on this day, people wear green clothes or a green accessory, and they drink a lot of Irish  beer.

And, by the way, this is a leprechaun :
