St. Patrick’s Day falls on March 17 every year and is observed in remembrance of Ireland’s revered patron’s saint.

There is a bit of entertaining history behind St. Patrick’s life. As a teenager, he was kidnapped from his home in Britain and taken as a slave to Ireland. He went through several hardships for 6 years before finally running away from his captors and returning back to his family.

He grew up to become a respected cleric and returned to Ireland as a Bishop. St. Patrick’s devotion for the betterment of the Irish poor made him immensely popular in Ireland and a force to reckon with in Irish culture.

St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated in America, thanks to the huge presence of Irish-Americans.
