What is St Patrick’s day and How did it start .. Well Saint Patrick wasn’t even Irish .. He was Born around the 5th century ..He was Born in Britian ..Then Part of the roman empire..When he was 16 yrs old was captured by the Irish raiders and brought to Ireland…Where he was kept captived for 6 years.. St.Patrick converted to christianity .Later He returned to Ireland as a Christian missionary..Where he worked as a missionary for the rest of his life …Until he died on March 17th 461….Where St.Patrick was largely forgotten until Mythology and Legend grew ..Centuries later he was honored as the Patron Saint Of Ireland..According to a famous story Patrick used a (3) three leaf Shamrock to explain The Holy Trinity ( The Father (on Top ) the Son (on the right side) and the Spirit (on the left)..As a result People in the 18th century in Ireland started to wear the shamrock on March 17th, As a symbol to signify their Irish Cristian Pride..That Tradition grew into wearing green clothing which is a popular St.Patricks Custom today.. Though Shamrocks don’t really exist , We Know them as many 3 leaf plants such as Wood Sorrel, or White and Yellow Clover ..As Important as St.Patrick is to irish history we Bet you didn’t know The tradition of celebrating March 17th with Parades Started in America ..The parades Which took off after the great Potatoe Famine in 1840’s in Ireland. Which sent hundreds of thousands of irish immigrants inot New York. Boston and alot of other American cities. The first record of the first St.Patricks Day Parade was in 1762 in New York. When a group of Irish soliders serving with the British ,Marched a few blocks to a tavern In Lower Manhattan..Today It is the Largest and Longest St.Patricks Parade with alomst 200,000 Participants and nearly 3 million spectators and growing each year ..So I hope this March 17th you will show Your pride for St.Patrick …..Have a Happy, Safe and Wonderful St.Patricks Day…2018….
