St Patrick is known as the patron saint of Ireland. Patrick was born in the later half of the 4th century AD. There are differing views about the exact year and place of his birth. According to one school of opinion, he was born about 390 A.D., while the other school says it is about 373 AD. Again, his birth place is said to be in either Scotland or Roman England. His real name was probably Maewyn. One day a band of pirates landed in south Wales and kidnapped this boy along with many others. Then they sold him into slavery in Ireland. He was there for 6 years, mostly imprisoned. Finally, he did escape and went to Britain. And then to France.
In France he joined a monastery and became a priest. He spent around 12 years in training. Then he set out for Ireland where he converted the Gaelic Irish to Christianity. Patrick was arrested several times,but escaped each time. For 20 years he had traveled throughout Ireland, establishing monasteries across the country.
There are many legends associated with St Patrick. The first legend is about how St. Patrick rid the “The Emerald Isle” of snakes. Another very famous legend about St. Patrick tells of his ability to explain complex technological concepts in simple ways. It is said that he used the SHAMROK (three-leafed clover) to explain the concept of the Trinity, which refers to the combination of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Horseshoe When kept as a talisman, a horseshoe is said to bring good luck. Many believe that to hang it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by. Others believe that the shoe should be hung the other way, as it will then release its luck to the people around it.
Another very important aspect of this day is the Chicago River is transformed from its usual murky green color into a BRIGHT GREEN (!!!) color ever can be seen. This whole activity marks as a respect to the true Irish spirit. Thousands of people gather around the Chicago River to witness their river being dyed with the color of Irish. Let’s watch it!!!
It should be noted St. Patrick's Day would be incomplete without a good drink of beer and whisky. Two most common phrases you're sure to come across are: Erin go Braugh (Free Ireland) and Sláinte (Cheers). Of course, Irish cuisine is featured in many restaurants, served with traditional Irish coffee.
