Saint Patrick’s Day was created by the Christian Church in Ireland in the 5th century. Saint Patrick’s Day is known as a religious feast day and holiday in Ireland, Northern Ireland and those countries with large Irish diaspora communities. A popular tradition for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day involves wearing green clothing or shamrocks.
This is a fun holiday to celebrate. It is recognized on March 17th, but the date has nothing to do with St. Patrick himself. According to legend, St. Patrick used his staff to chase away snakes from Ireland and since then it has become tradition for people all over the world to wear green on this day. The first recorded celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day was held by Irish immigrants in Boston in 1737; however, it was not until 1952 that President Truman declared March 17th as National Shamrock Day and encouraged Americans everywhere to wear green clothing or flowers as a way of honoring their Irish ancestry during this festive occasion!
The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. It is a religious feast day and holiday in Ireland, Northern Ireland and those countries with large Irish diaspora communities. Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations have been held for over 1,000 years and are thought to date back to the 5th century when St. Patrick arrived in Ireland as a missionary monk from Great Britain. The first recorded mention of Saint Patrick’s Day was written by Aengus, an Irish monk who lived around 460 AD: “I know how I am born; I know my father and mother; but I do not know how it came about that I am alive now at this moment.”
Saint Patrick’s Day commemorates Saint Patrick (circa 385-461), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. The day is observed primarily by people who are members or adherents of the Roman Catholic Church; however, many other Christian denominations have also adopted this celebration as part of their own traditions. Saint Patrick’s Day has been a public holiday in Ireland since 1903; it was made an official feast day by Pope Boniface VIII in 1300 AD after he created the Feast of St Gregory to replace an existing one on March 17th that was originally dedicated to St Brigid but was moved when she died around 523 AD!
A popular tradition for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day involves wearing green clothing or shamrocks. Green is the color of Ireland, so it makes sense that people would want to wear something that reminds them of their heritage. Green is also the color of spring, which is a time of renewal and growth–a perfect fit for this holiday! In fact, green was once associated with St. Patrick himself because he used a shamrock leaf as an example when explaining how God created all things in threes: “He made Heaven; He made Hell; And between these two extremes He placed man.” The use of green may have started with this story about St. Patrick using a shamrock leaf as an analogy for how God created everything (which itself has been debated). Regardless of its origins though, don’t be surprised if your friend wears some sort of shade ranging from light minty-blueish through olive drab today!
