St. Patrick’s Day is a yearly celebration held on March 17th (the day St. Patrick died, a LONG time ago in c. AD 385–461), in remembrance of one of Ireland’s most important patron saints, St. Patrick. It’s celebrated in more countries than any other national festival! Celebrations usually include public parades and festivals, lots of green and shamrocks, of course.
There are many ancient stories and legends surrounding St. Patrick’s Day – who doesn’t know that leprechaun dressed in green, trying to keep people away from his gold – but a story less commonly known, is that we owe St. Patrick’s Day to… pirates! Rumour has it that when Patrick was 15, Irish pirates raided his home, captured him and brought him with them back to Ireland. Thanks pirates!
Something else to be thankful for is that St. Patrick supposedly banished all snakes from Ireland, single handedly. From the top of a hill he managed to chase them all into the sea when they tried to attack him.
