To be completely honest I’ve never knows why people celebrate St Patricks day!
Since I have decided to celebrate and cook some yummy food for St. Patricks day I thought I better do a little research and figure out what this day is all about.
Perhaps the most well known legend is that he explained the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) using the three leaves of a native Irish clover, the shamrock.
Saint Patrick, who lived during the fifth century, is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. Born in Roman Britain, he was kidnapped and brought to Ireland as a slave at the age of 16. He later escaped, but returned to Ireland and was credited with bringing Christianity to its people. In the centuries following Patrick’s death (believed to have been on March 17, 461), the mythology surrounding his life became ever more ingrained in the Irish culture: Follow the link below and take a few minutes to listen to his life story!
Wow! Who knew? Not me. It does boggle my mind that people have twisted his legacy into a day of getting drunk on green beer? Im happy I took the time to find out what his legacy actually is and why we celebrate this day!I now have an appreciation for what an amazing man he was and what his legacy is all about.
Now lets Cook!!
