Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day With ZOOMOO

11:09 PM

St. Patrick’s Day is here and it’s time to celebrate the color green, one of the prettiest and most abundant colors in nature.

ZooMoo loves green, not only because it’s the color of plants but also because there are lots of wonderful animals, like this frog and parrot, that look simply stunning in green. 

To learn more about the color green in nature, spend this St. Patrick’s Day with ZooMoo characters and Flutter, our favorite green caterpillar. In his show Creciendo (Growing Up), he is completely fascinated by all the amazing ways in which animals grow up and enchants us by showing the interactions between baby animals and their parents.

And for those that want to know more about this special day when everything goes green, here are four things you may not know about St. Patrick’s Day:

1. Where does the name ‘Saint Patrick’ come from?
The celebration was made in honor of a man originally named Maewyn Succat, who then changed his name to Patrick when becoming a priest. He helped spread Catholicism throughout all of Ireland and because of this he was made the country’s patron saint after his death.

Do you know where Ireland is? Watch Flash in his show ¡Perdido! (Lost!), where he and his friends will teach you more about this and many more countries from around the world.
2. Why is this celebrated on March 17?
It is believed that Saint Patrick died on this date. It is also right around the beginning of spring, so many believe that the change of season is the real origin of the celebration.

3. What’s the story with the Leprechauns?
Leprechauns are little magical characters that dress-up like old shoemakers and drawings of them are used as decoration on St. Patrick’s Day. According to the old and wonderful Irish stories, they are grumpy, like to stay alone, and are very hard to find. The legend says that if a human is lucky enough to find and catch one of these little guys, he/she will be granted three wishes and a pot of gold! Tune-in to ZooMoo where the character La Mama Orangutan (Mom Orang') will tell you more wonderful tales like this one.

4. Why do people decorate with clovers?
The Irish call clovers Shamrocks and they always have three little leaves. For them it’s a symbol of good luck because they have always thought of the number 3 as a magical number. Sometimes a four-leaf clover is also used as decoration, but these are almost impossible to find in the real world. Learn to draw Shamrocks and much more watching ZooMoo’s Hazlo Junto a Francis (Lemur’s Art Class) featuring the channel’s resident artist and French raccoon named Francis (or Lemur in English).

“Was that a four-leave clover?”
ZooMoo loves to teach children about nature and wildlife. In fact, ZooMoo is the world’s first interactive kids channel designed to foster a lifelong love for animals and nature through a safe and unique television experience that is both entertaining and educational. 

ZooMoo interweaves puppetry, animation, and the world’s best natural history footage available in High Definition to tell stories about the animal world.
