St. Patrick’s Day is next week and it’s a wonderful holiday for believers all around the world to celebrate!
The holiday is, as is easily assumed, to in honor of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. There are many legends about what he did during his life–including banishing all of the snakes from Ireland–but what he is most widely known for is bringing the Gospel to the people of Ireland. Before the spread of Christianity, the habitants of the emerald isles were pagan. While there is evidence of some Christian practices on the island before he landed there, St. Patrick is often credited with the spread of our faith there.
See? Doesn’t that sound like something worth celebrating? Here are a few Irish and St. Patrick’s Day themed goodies and crafts for you to try!
