St. Patricks Day 2019
Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world by the Irish community and is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide. Saint Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland and is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated on the 17th of March as theory has it that this was the day that he died.
This day is celebrated with parades, wearing green, music, songs food and drink, and activities for kids such as crafts, colouring and games. The shamrock is the national flower of Ireland and the reason being is that St. Patrick used it to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagans.
