Teacher : Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Good afternoon! It's lovely to meet you here at our festival of English devoting to St. Patrick’s Day. Today you will know how this day is celebrated in Ireland, about traditions connected with this holiday, about St Patrick and I hope you will enjoy our performance. So let’s begin.
(slide 2) This holiday is celebrated every year on March 17th, honoring the Irish patron saint, St. Patrick.
(slide 3) Who is St.Patrick? The patron saint and national apostle of Ireland.
(slide 4) Green is the official colour of St. Patrick’s Day. It is also the national colour of the Irish and the symbol of spring. Green stripes are painted on the streets where the parade will travel. People wear green shirts, ties, hair ribbons and hats on that day!
(slide 5) The national emblem of Ireland is shamrock. Shamrock symbolizes the rebirth of spring. You are thought to be lucky if you find a four-leaved clover. Other story says, that Patrick used the shamrock to teach. The three leaves of the shamrock represented Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
(slide 6) Leprechauns are little Irish fairies, and they are thought to work as shoe-makers for other fairies. The Irish say that if a leprechaun is caught by a human, he will reveal where he hides his pot of gold. On this day, pictures of leprechauns are hung everywhere. Some people even dress up as leprechauns complete with their big green hats!
