What is the Meaning of St. Patrick's Day?

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and has a long history of teaching people about Catholicism and Christianity. He incorporated the many traditions and Irish culture into his everyday life.

America started celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in 1762 when homesick Irish soldiers organized a fun parade with lively Irish music including bagpipes and drums. The parade brightened their spirits and the rest is history!
