What is Saint Patrick’s Day? Something to Teach the Kids
Even though we all get dressed up in green and look for our lucky shamrock, Saint Patrick’s Day is actually a religious day.
Saint Patrick was a patron saint of Ireland. He was kidnapped at 16, but had a heart to turn people towards Christianity. In fact, he established monasteries, churches and schools for this purpose.
He had many legends around him. One of which is that he used the shamrock to teach about the trinity. This may be where we get that the shamrock is lucky?!
