Saint Patrick's Day History
St. Patrick's Day is a celebration of Irish pride and heritage. Saint Patrick was a British-born priest and former slave. He is known for converting the Irish to Christianity. He died on March 17, 461 C.E and was mostly forgotten. As time passed, stories started to spread around St. Patrick and centuries later, he was honored with the title of Patron Saint of Ireland.
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated annually on March 17th. Big parties and celebrations have become increasingly popular all over the world. Some themes include shamrocks, leprechauns, and lots of green.
