Comments: Your Saint Patrick's Day plans

Paraders

It's Saint Patrick's Day and we've been hearing what you're up to!

Thousands of people are expected to take to the streets of Dublin, Belfast and London where big parades are taking place.

Traditionally, people dress up in green clothes, and some even dye their hair green or wear green wigs!

It's also a hugely popular day in the US, where many people have Irish ancestors.

St Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland.
