People in Ireland stopped thinking about their financial problems for one day. Ireland celebrated the day of St Patrick. The celebration was international this year. 70 monuments like the Pyramids and the Jesus Christ statue in Rio de Janeiro were green too.

In Dublin there were many people dressed in green. The young people, the old people, everybody was celebrating. It was a five day celebration. 8,000 people from different countries came to Dublin to visit.

Thirteen million pints of Guinness were drunk in the world in one day. Guinness gave a free visit to its factory for everybody who had the name Patrick.

Interesting words: celebrate (have a party), monuments (special places from stone), pint (glass).
