The History of St. Paddy's Day
Saint Patrick's Day, the Feast of Saint Patrick, or St. Paddy's—whatever you call it, this holiday has an interesting past and many present-day celebrations worldwide. The holiday officially commemorates the death of Saint Patrick, a patron saint of Ireland. In Christianity, patron saints are chosen by faithful groups to intercede prayers between humanity and god.
So how did we get from Saint Patrick, an appointed religious ideologue, to the drink-frenzied parades and parties we know today? The two are more connected than meets the eye.
You see, the day celebrates both Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. As time progressed, the holiday also came to represent Irish culture and heritage in general. St. Patrick's Day came to be known as a time of festivals, céilís (social visits), and the wearing of the color green. Christians belonging to liturgical denominations attend church services on the day. St. Paddy's Day also coincidentally falls within the period of Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving.
During Lent, practitioners may not consume alcohol or food outside of strictly allotted times. However, St. Patrick's Day lifts these restrictions. This explains why the holiday became associated with the consumption of alcohol and grand feasts.
Why Do We Wear Green?
With the parties explained, what about wearing the color green? That has to do with Saint Patrick himself, too!
It is often said that the patron Saint Patrick used a shamrock—a three-leaved plant—to explain the Holy Trinity to pagan Ireland. The shamrock became a symbol of Christianity for the unevangelized Irish people. However, the color green holds many important meanings in Irish history and culture:
- Used in Irish mythology around the 11th century.
- The green harp flag represented the Irish Catholic Confederation, circa 1640.
- Irishmen have been wearing green shamrocks on St. Paddy's Day since at least the 1680s.
- The Friendly Brothers of St. Patrick, a fraternity, adopted the color green as their official color around 1750.
- Became the color of Irish nationalism due to its use by the Society of United Irishmen in the 1790s.
Oddly enough, the patron Saint Patrick loved the color blue. The Order of St. Patrick, an Anglo-Irish chivalric order, was founded in 1783 with blue as the official color. However, St. Paddy's Day retained the green signatory of the Irish people. Referred to as the "Emerald Isle," Ireland cherishes green as a color of national identity, explaining its association to an inherently Irish holiday.
Where is St. Patrick's Day Celebrated?
Officially, St. Paddy's is celebrated in: the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is unofficially (but widely) celebrated in the United States, United Kingdom, other Canadian provinces, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, and Brasil.
