St. Patrick’s Day
On March 17th, Irish people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
His place of birth is still unknown. We know that when he was 16, the pirates captured him and then sold him to a farmer who made him tend the sheeps.
He had some strange dreams so he decided to escape.
First he became a priest, later Bishop of Ireland, and he used the shamrock, which is now the national emblem of Ireland, to teach the Trinity.
St. Patrick is best known because, people think, he drove the snakes out of Ireland.
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in some christian countries (like New York, Dublin and others).
During this day, people use to drink alcohol and wear the shamrock.
