St. Patricks’s Day

Hello Readers,

 

Since today is St. Patrick’s Day, I thought we would learn a little bit about the history of the day and why it is important.

 

 

 

Patrick’s birthname was Maewyn. He was born in Roman Britain. He was kidnapped into slavery and brought to Ireland.

He escapted to a monastery in Gaul (France) and converted to Christianity. He went back to Ireland in 432 as a missionary. While Christianity had already taken hold in the country, tradition has it that Patrick confronted the Druids at Tara and abolished their pagan rites, making Christianity more widespread.

The video on this page is very interesting. It is worth the watch.

 

I am running a contest this week so stayed tuned for the details.
