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
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
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
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.
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.
