History of St. Patrick day and its tradition of celebration
St. Patrick was a 5th-century Roman-British Christian missionary and bishop of Ireland. Much of what is known about St. Patrick comes from a statement written by Patrick himself. He is believed to have been born into Roman Britain in a wealthy Roman-British family in the fourth century. His father was deaf and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. According to the statement, at the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish riders and taken as a slave to Gaelic Ireland. He claims to have spent six years as a shepherd and during this time he “discovered God.” The declaration states that God told Patrick to flee to shore, where the ship would wait to take him home. After making his home, Patrick became a priest.
According to tradition, Patrick returned to convert Ireland into a pagan Irish in Christianity. He campaigned for many years in the northern part of Ireland and became “thousands”, the statement said. Patrick’s attempts against the Druids eventually turned into a metaphor in which he banished “snakes” from Ireland, although snakes could not live in the area.
History of the St. Patrick day parade
St. Patrick’s Day, named after the patron saint of Ireland, is celebrated around the world on March 17 with parades and other celebrations.
