Also, St. Patrick is Scottish (not Irish), he died on March 17th (a.k.a., today; basically we're celebrating his death, lol), and the original color associated with St. Patrick was blue - not green.
Actually, if I remember correctly, Saint Patrick was Welsh. He was born to a relatively wealthy family and kidnapped at a young age then brought to Ireland, where he lived as a slave(a shepherd, I think) for years. Then one day he was either freed or just up and left and walked for miles before getting on a boat back to Wales. He became a Bishop and then got a calling from God to go back to Ireland as a missionary. So he did.
A lot of our holidays are death days, actually. Consider Valentine's day. He was a priest in the early times when marriage was outlawed, and was arrested and killed for performing marriages covertly.
Dmitri Pendragon: Elytra: Wait, it's actually referring to the oldest post on the Underground? (I never did chase that down in fact…)

Leilani Sunblade: Rose: Welcome to Whitehall/the new Underground! Glad to see you found your way here. As Elytra said, the riddle's pointing towards the old site and, specifically, a scavenger-hunt type game that WTB and CH set up when they first released the book

Leilani Sunblade: Sadly, the game is over, but we still have fun here.

Warrior of Aror: Let us sit round the hearth and tell stories of the lives we have lived these past moons! I myself have been working at a grand theater telling Bible stories from behind the scenes.
