What Is Saint Patrick’s Day?

When it comes to celebrations and holidays, it all leads to one question, “What is Saint Patrick’s Day?” The answer to that is very simple, though it may still need a few more details to curious people. Saint Patrick’s Day is the feast day of one of Ireland’s prominent patron saint. Just like all other feast days, it is observed to commemorate not the birth of that particular saint, but their death.

But then, the answer to that will lead us to another question, “Who is Saint Patrick?” He was a missionary who was born in Roman Britain in the late 4th century to a very wealthy family. At the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and was brought to Gaelic Ireland as a slave. For six years, he worked there as a shepherd, and that was when he was called by God.

With the guidance of God, Patrick was able to escape from captivity and was led to a coast where a ship was waiting for him. When he got back to his country, Patrick proceeded to becoming a priest. After being ordained, he returned to Ireland to convert the pagans to Christianity. Rumor has it that he was able to convert thousands of pagan Irish all around the northern part of Ireland. And, according to tradition, Patrick died on March 17 and was buried at Downpatrick.

Since then, March 17 has become an important date for Christians, especially the Irish locals and those emigrants from Ireland who wish to reconnect with their Irish roots.

Where Is Saint Patrick’s Day Observed?

Many would expect that Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations originated entirely in Ireland, and while most of them do, the parades actually originated in North America—specifically in New York City—in the 18th century. It was only during the 20th century when Saint Patrick’s Day parades were practiced in Ireland. The parade would usually consist of marching bands, fire brigades, the military, cultural and charitable organizations, youth groups, volunteers, and fraternities.

But to answer the question with regards to where this occasion is being observed, Saint Patrick’s Day is—aside from Ireland and the United States—also celebrated in Canada, Australia, Japan, Singapore, and Russia. Today, Saint Patrick’s Day is seen as both a religious occasion and a public holiday, with over a million people taking part in this joyous event.

What Is the Relevance of Wearing Green during Saint Patrick’s Day?

Ever since the 1640s, the color green has always been associate with Ireland, and this resulted from the use of the green harp flag by the Irish Catholic Confederation. By the 1680s, Irish people started wearing green ribbons and accessories that contained an image or a symbol of a shamrock during Saint Patrick’s Day.

However, an organization that was founded in 1783 called the Order of Saint Patrick adopted blue as the official color, and this led to the blue color being associated with Saint Patrick.

During the 1790s, the Irish nationalists adopted the green color, and this was due to green being used by the United Irishmen—an organization that comprised of many Catholic members but was led mostly by Protestants, who launched a rebellion against the British rule. After which, the green was once again the color associated with Saint Patrick’s Day, and this association grew throughout the 20th century.

What Is the Relevance of the Clover Plant with Saint Patrick’s Day?

The three-leaf clover—otherwise known as a shamrock—has long since been associated with Saint Patrick’s Day, and the reason behind this is because it was said to have been used by Saint Patrick to explain to the pagans in Ireland regarding the Christian Holy Trinity—God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. According to the legend, the shamrock was used as a metaphor, with each leaf representing each entity in the Holy Trinity.

But there have been common misconceptions with the use of the shamrock. Some depict it with having four leaves instead of three. The chances of finding a four-leaf clover is one in every ten thousand, which would mean that only those who are lucky enough are able to find these rare beings. Aside from simply being associated to good luck, four-leaf clovers are also associated to hope, faith, and love, though others would also say that the four leaves represent love, health, fame, and wealth.
