Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, which is the day he is thought to have died. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated all around the world, from America and Japan, to Argentina and Ireland. But why is this saint so popular and who is he really?
Saint Patrick was born in Roman Britain in circa 385. He was captured by Irish pirates at the age of sixteen and was enslaved in Ireland for six years. While being enslaved, he found God and turned to Christainty. After six years of slavery, he fleed form his enslavers and went on a boat to Britian. After some time he returned to his family. After studying more about Christanity, he moved to Ireland and began converting people to Christ. It is said that Patrick used the shamrock clover to show the Trinity.
