    13. Who was St. Patrick? Most of what we know about St. Patrick comes from his only writings, called The Confession. He was born in Britain between 385 and 389AD, during the last years of the Roman Empire; after Constantine established Christianity as the only legal religion in the Roman Empire (under the Edict of Constantine, 325AD). At 16 years old, Patrick was kidnapped by Irish pirates and forced to be a slave in Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day

    14. Who was St. Patrick? For six years, Patrick worked on a farm, caring for sheep. During that time, he remembered the teachings of his Christian parents, and became a Christian himself. In his writings, Patrick claimed that God strengthened him and guided him during his time as a slave. One quote reads, “And there the Lord opened my perception of my heart’s unbelief so that I remembered my sins even though late, and turned with all my heart to the Lord my God… St. Patrick’s Day

    15. Who was St. Patrick? “Now, after I came to Ireland, tending flocks was my daily occupation, and constantly I used to pray in the day time. Love of God and the fear of Him increased more and more, and faith grew, and the spirit was moved, so that in one day I would say as many as a hundred prayers, and at night nearly as many, so that I used to stay even in the woods on the mountain to this end.” St. Patrick’s Day

    16. Who was St. Patrick? Patrick also wrote about the night when God told him to escape from his slavery and find a boat to take him back home. How Patrick escaped is not clear, but he did return to Britain. After some years at home, Patrick decided to return to Ireland to share his faith in God with the Irish, who at that time did not follow the religion of Christianity. He spent 30 years in Ireland, sharing his faith in God and teaching Christian principles to the Irish people. He died on March 17, 461AD, thus the date for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. It began as a Christian holiday, but in the 1900s, became more secular. St. Patrick’s Day

    17. In November of 1995, the Irish government began to use Saint Patrick’s Day to showcase Ireland and its culture. The government set up the St. Patrick’s Festival, a group with the goal to: Offer a national festival that ranks amongst all of the greatest celebrations in the world Create energy and excitement throughout Ireland via innovation, creativity, grassroots involvement, and marketing activity Provide the opportunity and motivation for people of Irish descent (and those who sometimes wish they were Irish) to attend and join in the imaginative and expressive celebrations Project, internationally, an accurate image of Ireland as a creative, professional and sophisticated country with wide appeal, as we approach the new Millennium. The first St Patrick's Festival was held over one day, and night, on March 17th 1996. In 2010, the festival will last 6 days and 5 nights.

    18. Why celebrate the day? St. Patrick died on March 17, 461AD. Began as a religious holiday, in remembrance of St. Patrick. First official St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held in the New York City in 1762. St. Patrick’s Day turned into a festival to celebrate Irish heritage all around the world. St. Patrick’s Day
