Therefore, celebrate the irish St. Patrick's Day

Ireland and the irish throughout the world celebrate St. Patrick's Day d. March 17, but why do they actually it?

the Story of the irish saint began about 1700 years ago, when England was a part of the ailing roman empire. It was according to the myth the irish people to exploit the situation and take on plyndretogt in the neighboring country. Here they took many slaves, and one of those was the 16-year-old briton Patrick.

Back in Ireland was the young man set to fit at his new 'owner', but left off subsequent free and was therefore on the run. It managed to be reunited with his family after he was picked up by a ship and transported back to their home country. But here ended the relationship with Ireland.

Patrick chose to receive education in a monastery, and after a few years he decided to go back to Ireland to do missionary work. Here he was soon appointed bishop, and received great importance for the entry of christianity, in the green country. Among other things, he was to be baptized seven kings from different kingdoms, before he died in the year 461 d. March 17.

Subsequent is just the date has become the irish national holiday and is celebrated with beer, music and green clothes galore.

But what about the classic leafed? This is because St. Patrick explained the trinity to non-believers by showing a four clover. Cheers and Happy St. Patrick's Day'.
