Origins of St. Patrick’s Day Celebration
Originally begun as a somber feast day in honor of the death of St. Patrick, today’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations have come a long way towards international acclaim. St. Patrick, the most famous of Irish saints, isn’t even Irish it turns out, but Roman. Born in what is today Wales, St. Patrick was a Roman citizen who was kidnapped by Irish raiders and enslaved for 7 years in Ireland before escaping, getting recaptured, and being forced to escape again. By his 20s, he was a devout Christian and decided to return to the land of his captors to convert the druidic society to Roman Catholicism. You may have heard the tale of Patrick banishing the snakes from Ireland. Well, it turns out there were never snakes in Ireland, and this bit of saintly lore has more basis in allegory than fact. In banishing the snakes, St. Patrick was removing the influence of the pagan ways, which Christianity associated with the devil, much in the same way as the serpent represented the devil in the Garden of Eden. Ironically, though now it’s tradition to wear green on St. Patricks Day or else incur the wrath of a friendly pinch, the color associated with St. Patrick was not green, but blue. It’s a color often seen in paintings and stained glass depictions of the saint throughout history through today. Part of the tradition of green on St. Patrick’s Day comes from a 17th century Vatican decree assigning every catholic saint with a bit of botany. St. Patrick was assigned the shamrock, because of their abundance in Ireland and their easy association with the Holy Trinity. By the late 18th century, during the Irish Rebellion of 1798, Irish troops took to praying to St. Patrick for victory and singing “The Wearing of the Green,” and the two have been linked ever since. Whether you’re hosting a family dinner in celebration of your Irish heritage or heading out to a festive pub or restaurant for the annual remembrance of Ireland’s patron saint, ShamrockGift.com’s ample St. Patrick’s Day accessories are a must see.
