St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Francisca Mccarty
Just like St. Valentines Day St. Patrick s Day (i.e 17th March) commemorates the demise of the revered patronised Irish saint St. Patrick. So what is the legend behind St. Patrick which led to the association of a festival in his name and how is the day celebrated ? The story goes like this... Originally born (in later half of fourth century) to Roman parents in Scotland or Roman England (there are conflicting opinions regarding the place of birth) he was previously known by the name Maewyn Succat. He was given a Romanicized name Patricius leading to him being known as Patrick. Patrick was originally a pagan ( a non-believer of Christianity ). During his childhood he was kidnapped and sold as a slave to the Celtic Druids who then ruled Ireland.
There is also the option of decorating shirts and clothing with gold and silver glitter. Get a plain green t-shirt tank top dress whatever you would like to wear and add your design to it. Painting on shamrocks or pots of gold or even the words Happy St. Patrick s Day. Not to mention rainbows with pots of gold also. Br creative and add all sorts of flair to any green outfit you come up with. Don t forget to paint your face as well to go with the entire outfit you have created. Painted shamrocks and rainbows with pots of gold at the end of them are a great touch. You could go so far to add green temporary dye to your hair also.
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.
