Celebrated on March 17 in observance of the death of the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is full of shamrocks, leprechauns and green galore.
After having a vision of an Irish man who was in search of finding faith, St. Patrick became a priest and was sent to preach the Gospel in Ireland. He converted thousands and used the shape of a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity.
St. Patrick’s Day became a holiday in the 17th century and has grown into a celebration of Irish culture filled with parades, music, dancing and a whole lot of green!
