March 17th The first Spring Holiday One reason St. Patrick's Day might have become so popular is that it takes place just a few days before the first day of spring.
Who was Saint Patrick? Another tale about Patrick is that he drove the snakes from Ireland. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland as he was the one who brought Christianity to the Irish. According to legend, Saint Patrick used a shamrock to explain about God.
The history of the holiday And the Irish has borne it as part of their national tradition in everywhere they populated and prospered. The Catholic feast day for this most loved of Irish saints has become a holiday in celebration of the Irish and Irish culture.
Shamrock One traditional icon of the day is the shamrock. And this stems from a more bona fide Irish tale that tells how Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Trinity. He used it in his sermons to represent how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit could all exist as separate elements of the same entity. His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on his feast day.
Leprechauns These mythological beings have appeared for centuries in Irish folklore.
Horseshoe When kept as a talisman, a horseshoe is said to bring good luck. Many believe that to hang it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by. Others believe that the shoe should be hung the other way, as it will then release its luck to the people around it.
