A History of St. Patrick’s Day

Irish holiday is always celebrated on March 17th, which is the day that Saint Patrick died. He was a missionary way back in the 4th century who converted the Irish to Christianity. Saint Patrick was born around 385 AD in the United Kingdom. He went to Ireland to spread the Christian word and used the shamrock, which resembles a three-leafed clover, as a metaphor to explain the Christian concept of God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). Green is associated with St. Patrick’s Day because it is the color of spring, Ireland and the shamrock.
