Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Also known as St. Paddy’s Day, today is the day we celebrate the patron saint of Ireland. The Irish holiday is a global phenomenon and was first made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century. It is celebrated by the Catholic church, the Anglican Communion, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. St. Patrick’s Day is always on March 17, the supposed date of his death. It originally celebrated the arrival of Christianity in Ireland in the 5th century by Roman Britains. However, in modern times it has taken on a more secular tone.
