ON ST. PATRICK.
Far from being a saint, until he was 16, he considered himself a pagan. At that age, he was sold into slavery by a group of Irish marauders that raided his village. During his captivity, he became closer to God.

The St. Patrick’s Day custom came to America in 1737. That was the first year St. Patrick’s Day was publicly celebrated in this country, in Boston.

HISTORY OF SHAMROCK
In written English, the first reference to the Shamrock dates from 1571, and in written Irish, as seamrog, from 1707. As a badge to be worn on the lapel on the Saint’s feast day, it is referred to for the first time as late as 1681.

  1. People named Patrick are awesome!!

  2. I like those tidbits. Always looking for a way to cultivate myself. I kind of celebrate St. Patrick’s here because my husband’s name is Patrice (the French version).
