What are facts about 4 leaf clover?

User Avatar
A four leaf clover is a common 3 leaf clover with a mutation which makes it grow a fourth leaf. According to Irish tradition, a 4 leaf clover brings good luck to their finders, especially if it's found accidentally.

What’s the difference between a four-leaf clover and a shamrock?

User Avatar
I guess I get where this can be confusing, because both are clovers, but it’s pretty clear: A shamrock has three leaves, and a four-leaf clover has, well, four. Though there are around 300 species of clover, a shamrock isn't one of them—in fact, it could be any of them. Any type of clover that typically has three leaves can be considered a shamrock. The shamrock is the main symbol of St. Patrick’s Day and all things Irish because it’s supposedly what St. Patrick used to illustrate the concept of the Holy Trinity. Four-leaf clovers, on the other hand, are just freaks of nature in those same species of clover.

Why don't people go to work on Saint Patrick's Day?

User Avatar
Lots of people do go to work on St. Patrick's Day. For some, it is a holiday so there is a day off, like in Ireland where it is the national holiday and many workplaces are closed. For others, it is an ordinary day, so they go to work. In most countries it is an ordinary day. It will also depend on their job. Even if it is a day off, some people will work. For example, the emergency services have to have people working, so some of them will be working. If people are off, they can go and join in any celebrations that may be going on wherever they are. Some people like to take the day off so that they can do that.
