St. Patrick's Day
Transcript of St. Patrick's Day
The man himself.
He was born in Roman Britain in the 4th century.
At the age of 16 was kidnapped and taken to Ireland.
He managed to return to England, where he studied to become a priest.
In 432, it was time to go back to Ireland to bring Christianity to the pagans. And this is how he did it...
He explained the Holy Trinity to the Irish by showing them a shamrock.
The Holy Spirit
"The man who brought Christianity to Ireland"
He is now the patron saint of Ireland.
St. Patrick died on March 17th 461 and this date is now celebrated globally as St. Patrick's Day.
Commercialism has lead to the day becoming more of a celebration of Ireland rather than just St. Patrick.
But few complain...
The Chicago River is dyed green each year in celebration.
St. Patrick is even accredited with ridding Ireland of snakes. (Though of all his myths this is probably the best.)
So, take some time to enjoy the day!
Knowing that many others around the world, will have the day off. And if you're so inclined, have a drink to celebrate or even an Irish Stew!
