Who uses ?
In text messages and social media, the St. Patrick’s Day emoji is used to observe the holiday on or around March 17th. Expect it to be paired with the four-leaf clover emoji, the rainbow emoji, the Irish flag emoji, and—because Americans use the holiday as an excuse for a booze-fest—the beer mug emoji.
