I have to confess that I thought St. Patrick’s Day was about pots of gold, leprechauns and four leaf clovers. I suppose if I thought hard about it, I would have guessed that St. Patrick was a Catholic saint. So, in a fit of curiosity and because I recently subscribed to a blog, Celebrating Holidays, to help me blog, I read the true history of St. Patrick. He’s like Joan of Arc!
So, here is the blog post on the History of St. Patrick’s Day. And here is a video if you prefer something visual.
And here is another short video about St. Patrick at History.com.
