  • Brief History of Ireland's National Holiday St Patricks Day

In Ireland, St. Patrick's Day is primarily a religious holiday. This is celebrated in honor of Ireland's national saint, Patrick. According to tradition, he is said to have been the first Christian missionary in Ireland. He was also the first bishop of the Irish Christians and is now considered the patron saint of the people of the Emerald Isle. His personality has been shrouded in legends and myths until now. For example, Patrick is said to have explained the Holy Trinity to the Irish pagans in an interesting way during a sermon in the field. He found a three-leaf clover and compared it to the trinity of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This may also explain the fact that the green shamrock has now become a symbol of Irish national pride. He should everyone bring luck.

The green shamrock is believed to bring good luck to everyone.

The four-leaf clover is the eternal symbol of luck worldwide.

The Irish saint is said to have died on March 17, 461 or 463. To commemorate the anniversary of his death, today the date of March 17th is an official public holiday in Ireland and Northern Ireland, the British Overseas Territory of Monserrat and the Canadian province of Newfoundland. In the Roman Catholic Church it is celebrated with festive services. Over the centuries, this Christian holiday has become more secular. Now parades in green and subsequent parties characterize the festival. You can see how the world celebrates St Patrick's Day, in Ireland and beyond, in the video below.
