St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! It is an enjoyable holiday even for those of us who are not Irish.

Shamrocks, corned beef, cabbage, all things green, rainbows, leprechauns, parades, and good luck charms are fun for everyone.

Writing this post made me want to learn more about the day.

Did you know that St. Patrick was not Irish?

He was born in Roman Britain and kidnapped by the Irish when he was 16 years old. He escaped a few years later and went back to Ireland to convert them to Christianity.

St. Patrick used the 3 leafed shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

The original color of St. Patrick’s Day was blue. It was only in the 19th century that green became the color of the day. I just can’t picture blue on March 17th!

March 17th is the date of St. Patrick’s death, not his birth.

The first St. Patrick’s Day parade was not even held in Ireland. It was held in Boston in 1737 (and the first official one in New York in 1766).

If you are interested in more information like what I found above, look at these sites;
