Why is St Patrick’s Day Celebrated ?
Why is St Patrick’s Day Celebrated? St Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. Many legends said that he drove the snakes out of Ireland and used the shamrock to explain the Trinity. He is known from two short works, the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and his Letter to Coroticus, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish Christians. One of the most popular, is that of the shamrock, which has him explain the concept of the Holy Trinity, three persons in one God, to an unbeliever by showing him the three-leaved plant with one stalk.
