Shamrocks, snakes, and shenanigans: the history of St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17th every year and honors the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick.
The holiday originally began as a religious feast day in the early 17th century and has since evolved into a celebration of Irish culture and heritage.
St. Patrick himself was born in Britain in the 4th century and was later kidnapped and taken to Ireland as a slave.
After escaping, he became a priest and returned to Ireland to spread Christianity. He is often credited with using the shamrock as a symbol to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people.
The first St. Patrick's Day parade was actually held in New York City in 1762 by Irish soldiers in the British army.
The tradition of wearing green on St. Patrick's Day likely began in the 17th century as a way to show pride in Irish heritage.
Today, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated around the world with parades, festivals, and of course, plenty of green beer.
Whether you're Irish or not, it's a great excuse to celebrate with friends and family and honor the legacy of St. Patrick with some St. Patrick’s Day cards.
