Happy St. Patrick's Day from Graham Auto Repair!

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year we decided to hold a True or False Quiz on the History and Legends of St. Patrick's Day.

I did a lot of research to ensure that all of the answers in this quiz are correct. But I encourage you to do your own research too! There are so many legends and myths surrounding the history of St. Patrick. It has been very interesting to learn all of these things about this holiday and why we celebrate it today; many of them that I had no idea about!

We hope that everyone enjoys their St. Patrick's Day, and that you enjoy this fun video. You can read the questions below and play along if you want to! The answers will be listed at the end of this blog.
