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.
