Discovery Room: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Did you know that St. Patrick has been celebrated annually for over 1000 years! The history of St. Patrick’s Day goes back to a unique period of Ireland’s history. Today, we celebrate with green clothing and beverages, but the origins of this day are a mixture of myth and faith.

Patrick was a man who brought Christianity to the Celtic people of Ireland by merging Christian and Celtic stories together, such as Saint Columba defeating the infamous Loch Ness Monster.
