St. Patrick's Day is a Holiday Rich with History

On March 17, many people will be dancing an Irish jig in honor of St. Patrick's Day.  This is the most celebrated holiday in America.  All across America, people will attend parades.  The most elaborate parades are in New York and Chicago.  In fact, the Chicago River is dyed green for the day.  Drinking green beer and going from bar to bar is usually the agenda for the day.  On the other hand, the Irish have observed St. Patrick's Day as a religious holiday for thousands of years.  Here is a look at the history of St. Patrick's Day.

 

St. Patrick

St. Patrick was born into a wealthy family in Britain.  He was taken prisoner by Irish raiders who attacked his family's estate.  He was taken to Ireland and held in captivity.  Patrick escaped after being held prisoner for more than 6 years.  It's believed he heard a voice which he believed to be the voice of God telling him to leave Ireland.  He went to Britain where it's believed he had a dream of an angel telling him to go back to Ireland as a missionary.  He studied and became an ordained priest.  He eventually returned to Ireland to minister to the Christians and convert Irish who were not practicing Christians.

 

Patrick was familiar with the Irish language and culture.  He used tradition ritual in his lessons and did not attempt to erase the beliefs of the Irish.  Bonfires were used to celebrate Easter because the Irish honored their gods with fire.  He took the sun and superimposed it onto the Christian cross, thus creating the Celtic cross.  The symbol would seem more natural to the Irish.  After all, most of the Irish practiced a nature-based pagan religion.

 

The History of St. Patrick's Day

Christians all over the world commemorate St. Patrick on March 17, which is the day St. Patrick died.  Many people believed that he banished snakes from Ireland.  However, after some investigation into the history of St. Patrick's Day this belief was proven to be false.  Stories about St. Patrick were exaggerated throughout the years.  Parades are part of St. Patrick's Day.  Digging further into the history of St. Patrick's Day, it can be noted that the first parade occurred on March 17, 1762 in the United States of America.  Irish soldiers serving the English military marched and played their music through New York City.  This helped them reconnect with their Irish roots and fellow Irish men serving in the English army.

 

Ireland observes St. Patrick's Day as religious holiday.  After further research of the history of St. Patrick's Day, it was found that until the 1970s, Irish law mandated that pubs close on March 17. This all changed in 1995 when the government of Ireland chose to use St. Patrick's Day to drive tourism to Ireland -- it worked.  Tourism to Ireland is non-stop.  If you go to Dublin for St. Patrick's Day, you could be treated to parades, concerts, outdoor theater productions, decorations, and fireworks.

 

The history of St. Patrick's Day includes many myths and legends.  The most popular is that of leprechauns.  Said to be fairies that stand 2 feet tall and have the look of an old man, they are not friendly creatures.  They are dressed like shoemakers and make shoes to pass time.  They have a pot of gold which they protect.  If you track one down, they are supposed to reveal the whereabouts of the pot of gold.  Do not take your eyes off of a leprechaun.  If he disappears so does your chance of getting your hands on the pot of gold!

 

The history of St. Patrick's Day includes people wearing green in honor of Ireland.  The shamrock and three leaf clover are also symbols of St. Patrick's Day holiday.  People will dance and sing Irish tunes.  It's a day to celebrate with a party and observe St. Patrick as the patron saint of Ireland. Remember to watch out for those leprechauns.  They will not give up their pot of gold without a fight.
