Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! ~ Some St. Patrick’s Day Facts

l_47ed1bb4a0c14335a5659ed19a22475f

Facts about St. Patrick’s Day Holiday

  • St. Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17 because that is the feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.    It is believed that he died on March 17 in the year 461 AD.   It is also a worldwide celebration of Irish culture and history. St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday in Ireland, and a provincial holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
     
  • In Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day, people traditionally wear a small bunch of shamrocks on their jackets or caps.  Children wear orange, white and green badges, and women and girls wear green ribbons in their hair.
     
  • Many cities have a St. Patrick’s Day parade. Dublin, the capital of Ireland, has a huge St. Patrick’s Day festival from March 15-19, that features a parade, family carnivals, treasure hunt, dance, theatre and more. In North American, parades are often held on the Sunday before March 17.   Some paint the yellow street lines green for the day!   In Chicago, the Chicago River is dyed green with a special dye that only lasts a few hours.   There has been a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Boston, Massachusetts since 1737.   Montreal is home to Canada’s longest running St. Patrick’s Day parade, which began in 1824.

Facts about Saint Patrick

  • St. Patrick was born in 385 AD somewhere along the west coast of Britain, possibly in the Welsh town of Banwen.   At age 16, he was captured and sold into slavery to a sheep farmer.   He escaped when he was 22 and spent the next 12 years in a monastery. In his 30s he returned to Ireland as a Christian missionary.   He died at Saul in 461 AD and is buried at Downpatrick
