There is just something so homey about a good
When I was younger St Patrick’s day was about the pub crawl and whoever started seeing green little men first lost. Nowadays it is about the food and doing crafts with my kids.
Since we are homeschooling this year, I thought it would be fun to pull up some facts about different holidays and how they came to be. What I found out was shocking!
St Patrick is a real person, but he is not Irish he is British. He ended up in Ireland when he was kidnapped and sold into slavery. He escaped slavery after several years and went back to Britain. However, something told him to go back to Ireland as a missionary and spread the word of God.
After he passed away, he was named the patron saint of Ireland for bring Christianity to the preciously pagan region.
Over the years, once the Irish started migrating to the United States, they started gaining major political popularity in big cities and the parades and festivities just grow. Moreand more people caught on and participated in the celebration.
Now we have a fun day of Irish green called St Patrick’s Day with plenty of food and drinks. Speaking of food how about I share a few Delicious Saint Patrick’s Dishes with you from theFood Blogosphere.
