Kids speak at BUIES CREEK Elementary School

Why do we celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day?


Rylan Sullivan, 8

“I’m not sure, but I think of leprechauns.”

Mattie Privette, 6

“Because the man died on the day we would celebrate him, that day is March 17.”

Keegan White, 7

“Because he died and he was treated badly then ran away.”

Alexis West, 9

“For the Irish, because people attacked them.”

Jennifer Sarmiento-Dominguez, 7

“It’s when the leprechauns look at the rainbow to find the gold.”

Joseph Harris, 6

“Because it’s fun.”
