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.
On March 17 1762 Irish soldiers who served in the English military marched through New York City. The parade and music stirred their emotions and brought back memories of Ireland and fellow soldiers they had lost. Irish Americans began observing the holiday publicly in Boston and held the first St. Patrick s Day Parade (organized by the Charitable Irish Society) in New York City in 1766. Even today the St. Patrick Day parade is a mixture of religious beliefs and many people go to Ireland for the festivities fireworks and the parade. Parades take place in other places too: London Paris Rome Moscow Beijing Hong Kong Singapore as well as throughout the Americas.
