St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, the saint's
religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth
century.
The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for
over 1,000 years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the
Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally
attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon.
Saint Patrick, who lived during the fifth century, is the
patron saint of Ireland. Born in Roman Britain, he was
kidnapped and brought to Ireland 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: Perhaps the most well known legend is
that he explained the Holy Trinity using the three
leaves of a native Irish clover, the shamrock.
Since around the ninth or 10th century, people in Ireland have
been observing the Roman Catholic feast day of St. Patrick
on March 17.
Interestingly, however, the first parade held to honor St.
Patrick's Day took place not in Ireland but in the United
States.
On March 17, 1762, Irish soldiers serving in the English
military marched through New York City.
Today, people of all backgrounds celebrate St.
Patrick's Day, especially throughout the United
States, Canada and Australia.
Although North America is home to the largest
productions, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in many
other locations far from Ireland, including Japan,
Singapore and Russia.
Today, approximately 1 million people annually
take part in Ireland 's St. Patrick's Festival in
Dublin, a multi-day celebration featuring
parades, concerts, outdoor theater productions
and fireworks shows.
