St. Patrick's History and Celebration Ideas
In the United States St. Patrick's Day is a day of festive parades, parties and lots of green. But, why do we celebrate St. Patrick's Day?
According to History.com St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on the March 17, the day of St. Patrick's death. St. Patrick was the patron saint of Ireland and its national apostle. In 1601, the first St. Patrick's Day took place in America not Ireland and centuries later we still celebrate the day as a way for Irish to connect to their roots.
Today, St. Patrick's Day has grown into a national celebration full of green food and drink, shamrock decorations and parades. This year think about celebrating the day by not only wearing green and watching a parade, but playing Irish Trivia, watching an Irish movie or making a Leprechaun trap with the kids.
