I don't know about you, but when I think about St Patricks day over my lifetime, when I think of St Patrick's day as a child, it simply meant wearing green to not get pinched and stories of leprechauns. As I came of age, it took on a whole new meaning with partying, dancing and green beer. Now as I settle into my forties, it had become just another day except for reminding the kids to wear their green, that is, until I read this awesome article by Natalie at Detail Oriented Diva.
Detail-Oriented Diva!: St. Patty's Preview: Shamrock and The Trinity
I had no idea who St Patrick was. I know the saints are generally associated with the catholic church. And that is one church that I have never attended. I did pass out in one, but that's a whole other story that is not entirely unique as I have heard of many people passing out during their long wedding services. But it was just a few weeks ago that my pastor was talking about how hard it is to explain the trinity to believers yet alone get nonbelievers to understand. So I was searching the Internet for some St Patrick's day inspiration and stumbled across this and thought it was too good not to share.
If you are not a Christian and are offended by this post, my apologies. My intent is not to offend anyone just share some more info about the history of St Patricks day.
