About St Patrick's Day

The day of St. Patrick's, the patron-saint of Ireland who was born about 386 A. D., is celebrated by Irishmen, wherever they exist. The shamrock is worn everywhere, in commemoration of the fact that when St. Patrick was preaching the doctrine of the Trinity, he made use of this plant, which bears three leaves upon one stem, as a symbol of this great mysterium.

Liberal participation of "Patrick's pot" and great feasting are the principal signatures of the day....

... I am so sorry to do this to you, but this post has been combined with another and moved to my new website, Pagan Calendar, it can be found here: St Patrick's Day

Great article. I love the poem! I never knew the snakes were symbolic.
