What is St. Patty’s day? One of the, worldwide religious and cultural celebrations done every 17th of March: St. Patrick’s Day or St. Patty’s Day. Celebration of this day has become a tradition for many countries including the United States. This is to celebrate the most acknowledged patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, whose death is known to be this day.
St. Patrick is said to be from Roman Britain, born from a wealthy family. Most of what’s known about him is derived from the Declaration. It is believed that St. Patrick himself wrote the Declaration. He became a slave to Gaelic Ireland when he was 16 and spent six years as a shepherd. According to the Declaration, God told him to go to the coast and a ship will take him home. He became a priest after making his way back to his home and eventually returned to Ireland to convert pagans to Christianity. It is also believed that he banished snakes from Ireland after being attacked while he was fasting. St. Patrick’s Day became an official feast day for Christians in the early seventeenth century.
The Catholic, Lutheran Eastern Orthodox and Anglican Communion churches observe this feast yearly. The United States started its participation in celebrating this feast in 1737. Participants of this tradition, including restaurants and pubs in the United States, wear shamrocks which are believed to have been used by St. Patrick to explain the Holy Trinity.
Green clothing and accessories are also worn during this feast. Bagpipers are also a common view during this celebration since Ireland is known for its great bagpipers.
