St. Patrick was born in Britain, not Ireland, as part of the Roman Empire. At age 16, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and spent six years in captivity.
Legend has it, the Patron Saint of Ireland banished all the snakes to symbolize the cleansing of the island from Paganism. Truth is, it’s too cold for snakes to live on the island.
Stories tell that St. Patrick used the three leaves of the shamrock to explain the three parts of the Holy Trinity. Wearing a shamrock eventually became a symbol of Irish-Christian pride.
The celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, complete with parades, began in America, not in Ireland. The first parade dates back to 1762 in New York and continues to be the largest and longest parade annually.
