        Many people wonder what St Patrick did and why the holiday was named after him. St Patrick is an Irish saint, also known as the "Apostle of Ireland". According to legend, being born on the island of Britain, he was kidnapped by pirates and brought to the territory of Ireland, where he spent many years as a slave. After his release, he became a missionary and preached Christianity throughout Ireland, driving out serpents and preaching Christianity. Indeed, there are no snakes on the island. Opinions of historians differ on many facts that relate to the biography of St Patrick, but agree on one thing - it was he who brought Christianity to Eire (formerly so called Ireland).


Meet the holiday brightly: the tradition of clover and the colour green.

        The symbolism of the clover and the colour green is closely linked to the legends of St Patrick and his work in Ireland. What did St Patrick do with the three-leaf clover? According to one legend, St Patrick used the plant to explain the Trinity to his followers, where each leaf is a different aspect of the Divine Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This explanation was simple and easy to understand for the local people, which helped spread Christianity. Since then, the clover has become a symbol of faith, hope and love, as well as a symbol of St Patrick and his feast day. On St Patrick's feast days, people wear jewellery with three-leaf clovers and also use it in their outfits.


        The colour green is also an integral part of this celebration. What did St. Patrick do that he associates with the colour green? This colour is a symbol of Irish nature and culture. How is St Patrick's Day celebrated to honour these traditions? On this day, people wear green clothes, decorate homes and streets with green elements, and serve green food and drinks at holiday meals. This creates a bright and cheerful atmosphere filled with joy and festive mood.
