St. Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian Holiday in the 17th Century. It is to celebrate the heritage and culture of the Irish. This day also commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. People usually celebrate by having parades and festivals. People normally wear green and shamrocks.
Saint Patrick. Who is he? He was born in Roman Britain in the fourth century. He was born into a wealthy family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather a priest. At the age of 16 Saint Patrick was kidnapped by Irish Raiders. He became a slave to Gaelic Ireland. Supposedly, he spent 6 years as a shepherd. Patrick found God and was informed to flee to the coast where a ship would be waiting to take him home. After arriving home Patrick became a Priest. Saint Patrick spent many years converting the pagan Irish to Christianity. He died on March 17.
