St Patrick’s Day-What Does it Mean-When Did it Start
Have you ever wondered……Actually, it started back in 385 AD and as the story goes Patrick was born and later became a Patron Saint and eventually there was a celebration/feast day and a celebration of the Irish Heritage by Christian faith. And as I have read there are many myths about Patrick, here are a few fun facts:
♣ March 17th is the day since St. Patrick’s death.
♣There is a myth that he drove all the snakes in Ireland …
♣St Patrick was not Irish and not born in Ireland but in Britain around 385 AD
♣ St. Patrick’s color was not green….But blue, changed in the 17th century
♣The first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in New York City in 1762.
♣ He was a slave at 16 kidnapped and kept in slavery for 10 years tending sheep ran away at age 22 to a monastery in Gaul for 12 years. Where he studied for the priesthood and was ordained a bishop. And later took his teachings back to Ireland and for 30 years where he was determined to convert the country to Christianity, according to his Bio. Source
