I have been told that in my area, the time to plant peas is on St. Patricks Day. This year, I did and now the temperature dropped below 32F last night. Is St. Patricks day too early? And will the seeds freeze?

Peas are very cold tolerant and are normally planted about six weeks before the last anticipated frost date for your area. They should be fine. Unbelievable, but true.
