In Mexico City, the Angel of Independence and the Soumaya Museum will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this week in honor of Ireland’s patron saint.
The idea is to start an annual tradition of celebrating the day because there are Irish in many countries, including Mexico, said Irish Ambassador to Mexico Sonja Hyland.
St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious celebration that takes place every year on March 17. It commemorates the arrival of the Christian faith to Ireland.
It’s believed that St. Patrick used a clover as a metaphor for the trinity (father, son and holy ghost). Dressing up in green on that day represents spring, clovers and Ireland.
Mexico will use green lights to light up emblematic monuments for the second year in a row. The Soumaya Museum is expected to join the festivities by also using green lights. The Independence Monument represents Mexico’s sovereignty while the museum is testament of the country’s vibrant modern age.
This year Mexico will also celebrate the St. Patrick’s Batallion that helped the Mexican Army in the Churubusco Battle during the U.S. invasion of Mexico in 1847.
“We also want to say to the world that St. Patrick’s Day can be celebrated by all regardless of whether they are Irish or not. You can celebrate if you feel love toward and know about the country,” Hyland said.
This year, there will be more than 40 activities related to St. Patrick’s Day in different venues across Mexico City.
