“And then he became a priest and went back to Ireland, where he had a lot of luck trying to convert the Druid culture into Christianity.”
The celebration of March 17 first began in 1631, when the Church created a Feast Day in honor of St. Patrick. Being a patron saint of Ireland, he died in the fifth century, which means that he died 12 centuries before the modern version of the holiday was first celebrated.
“We know he was a Roman citizen because Britain was Roman at the time, and then he was taken as a slave to Ireland, where he either escaped or was released,” said Marion Casey, a clinical assistant professor of Irish studies at New York University. .
The church added a botanical item to St. Patrick’s, which is customary for all saints, as he was given the symbol of the lucky shamrock.
The first New York City parade took place in 1762, and the color green was associated with the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day after the Irish Rebellion in 1798.
Previously, according to Casey, the color associated with St. Patrick’s Day was blue.
