why "la Saint-Patrick" and not "le jour de Saint-Patrick?" Saint Patrick is masculine as is "jour" however in the answer it is feminine. And could "feter" be used instead of "celebrer" Thank you Christine Clegg

Bonjour Christine ! You could also use "le jour de la Saint-Patrick", but a name day is always feminine in French, as it's considered as a "fête" (la fête). See the related lesson: https://kwiziq.learnfrenchwithalexa.com/revision/grammar/which-prepositions-to-use-with-name-days-valentines-day As for "fêter", it could indeed be used here as well. I've now added these options to the Writing Challenge :) Bonne journée !
