A brief history of Saint Patrick’s Day
Saint Patrick is commonly known as the patron saint of Ireland. He was born at the end of the fourth century in Britain, kidnapped at the age of 16 and sold into slavery in Ireland. He managed to escape but returned to Ireland in 432 CE to teach the Irish about Christianity.
During this time he opened churches, monasteries and schools and many legends surround him. He is alleged to have driven snakes out of Ireland and used the shamrock to demonstrate the holy trinity. He died on March 17th 461 CE and this day is now celebrated throughout the world by Irish emigrants and others alike.
Saint Patrick’s day is now a secular holiday of feasting and revelry and a celebration of all things Irish.
Shamrock the Irish National Plant is often worn in the lapel for St.Paddy’s Day. Green clothing is also popular during the holiday. Sometimes even beer is colored green largely for the benefit of tourists.

Apart from shamrock, a mythical creature called a Leprechaun is also associated with Irish culture. The Leprechaun is a kind of sprite in Irish folklore similar to a fairy. Normally depicted as a mischievous, little bearded man in green clothing.
They are alleged to spend their time mending shoes and have a pot of gold hidden at the end of a rainbow.Share this post on Twitter and tell your friends how to claim a free gift.Click To Tweet
