What is the meaning Of Saint Patricks Day? The modern holiday is based on the original Christian saint s feast day which is also considered to be the date of the saint s death in 1737. Saint Patrick was born in Wales during the late fourth century (AD 385) to wealthy Roman parents (his given name is speculated as Maewyn Succat or Magonus Sucatus).
He was the grandson of a priest and the son of a tax collector. As a teen in the early 400 s Patrick was captured and brought over from Scotland to be a slave in pagan Ireland. For six years he slaved as a shepherd herding pigs and sheep and began to have religious visions. While spending time in prayer Patrick found himself retreating back to the God he had learned about when he was younger. Inspired by a dream he successfully escaped his bondage and went back to England traveling throughout the region. How did it begin? Irish immigrants coming to America brought their love of Saint Patrick with them.
