The Day For Green!

St. Patrick's Day is a fun day to eat corn beef and cabbage and dance to folk music, but what a lot of people don't know is that this day is more then pots of gold being guarded by leprechauns and dressing all in green. St. Patrick's Day is actually a feast day for a person that actually lived. Patrick was born in the 5th century to Roman-British parents. As a teenager he was kidnapped by pirates and sold as a slave in Ireland to held herd and tend the sheep. Patrick was able to escape when he was twenty years old and returned home, after which he entered the seminary. After being ordained a priest he returned to the land of his captivity to show the druid oppressed people the truth. St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland.
