St. Patricks Day Virtual World Destinations
Saint Patrick’s Day is the celebration of the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick who lived from AD 387 to AD 461. The feast day grew to not only acknowledge the Saint but also to become a celebration of Irish Culture throughout the world.
The day is marked by festivities including wearing of the color green which is of historical significance as St. Patrick reportedly used the native “shamrock” leaf to explain the “trinity” concept while teaching Christianity. The color green has been associated with the celebration since the 17th century.
St. Patrick was a Roman/British man who came from a long line of clergymen. When he was sixteen he was kidnapped and taken from Great Britain to Ireland. He fled his captors to Gaul and trained as a priest, at which time he felt a calling to return, as a Bishop to Ireland for his ministry in 432 AD and began by converting the Irish aristocracy. Thirty years later he died on March 17, 461 AD and was reportedly buried at Downpatrick, Ireland.
