What is St. Patrick’s Day Anyway
In short, St. Patrick’s Day is the day of recognition given to St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland (March 17th).
Although not born in Ireland, St. Patrick was noted as having a profound impact on the people and the society of the country itself. There are numerous legends regarding St. Patrick as well. He has been credited as having led all of the snakes away from Ireland, which is the reason Ireland has no snakes. He was also reported to have used a shamrock in one of his teaching parables… a reason we associate the clover-shaped object with St. Patrick’s Day.
If you’re a history buff, and want to read more about the Patron Saint of Ireland, here’s a link to his page on Wikipedia. It’s probably all you’d ever want to know!
How Can I Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
