Hey Sparkles! Today is Saint Patrick’s Day. You may be wondering how this festive day of green got started. Well, here you go, my customary research because I enjoy learning about holidays I have taken for granted forever.
History of Saint Patrick’s Day
Well, St. Patrick’s Day is the feast day of the Irish missionary dubbed “Saint Patrick.” Saint Patrick rid Ireland of the druids who worshipped the snake gods. On this festive day, you should eat corned beef and cabbage. These foods are Irish feast staples.
Some symbols of St. Patrick’s Day are the shamrock, a snake (because of the snake gods), a leprechaun and his pot of gold, the Celtic cross, and interestingly, a harp. The harp is because it signifies peace and prosperity. Look at the image for this post for all these symbols.
