History of St. Patrick’s Day
As a history major, I love knowing about the history of holidays. Even when that holiday has turned into a secular celebration that is focused on green beer!
St. Patrick’s Day is (obviously) a celebration of the saint named Patrick. March 17th is the anniversary of his death, which is believed to have taken place in 461 A.D. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is credited with bringing Christianity to the Irish.
St. Patrick was born in Roman Britain in the late 4th century. He was kidnapped at the age of 16 and traveled to Ireland as a slave. He escaped. However, he returned in 432 A.D. with the purpose of converting the Irish to Christianity.
St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated in Ireland since the 9th or 10th century. Lenten prohibitions (such as against eating meat) were dispensed with for the day. The Church officially started celebrating the holiday in 1631.
However, it was emigrants to the United States that turned it into a largely secular holiday. In 1601, in St. Augustine, FL, a St. Patrick’s Day parade took place. This was followed by Boston in 1737 and New York in 1762.
As the centuries have passed, the holiday has expanded to include a river dyed green, everyone wearing green, corned beef & cabbage, and green beer. And it now includes a free printable St. Patrick’s Day treasure hunt!
St. Patrick’s Day Coloring Pages
• Print options: regular paper works.
• • All of the files are in pdf below. Just hit the “download” button (or pink word “download,” depending upon browser). The file for each page should be directly below the image.
• The default size of these is full-page. However, if you want smaller, simply reduce the print size!
Idea: reduce the print size to 50% to 65% (depending upon printer), switch to landscape printing, print on cardstock, and fold in half to make a card to give to parent, grandparents, or other family member! (This works best if you download the pdf, not try to save and print from the image).
