When is St Patrick’s Day 2022?

St Patrick’s Day will be celebrated on Thursday, 17 March 2022

St Patrick’s Day History/ Origin

St Patrick’s Day is a feast day of St.Patrick who was a patron saint in Ireland.

He took birth in Roman Britain in the late 4th century and at the age of 16, he was abducted and was taken as a slave to Ireland.

He managed to escape from slavery but returned to Ireland to spread Christianity there in about 432 AD.

Before he died on March 17, 461 he established churches, schools, and monasteries and due to his great works towards Christianity various tales grew around him, for example, he used the shamrock plant to explain the meaning of Trinity ( Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit ).

Thus, Ireland celebrates his day with religious feasts and services.

St Patrick’s Day Celebrations

This festival is highly celebrated by Irish People, Catholic Chruch, Anglican Communion, Eastern Orthodox, and Lutheran Chruch.

Due to the various Irish emigrants in the USA, this festival slowly transformed into a largely secular holiday of celebrations and parties. 

Places with huge Irish immigrants, who now frequently exercise political exercise, organize this day with large scale celebrations, which comprises of beautiful parades.

First ever St Patrick’s Day parade was perfromed was organized in Boston in 1737 followed by New York City  in 1762.

To celebrate this day, Chicago has dyed its river with green color to recognize this grand festival. Both Irish and non-Irish people celebrate this day by wearing green clothes.

Cabbage and corned beef are linked with this holiday, and sometimes beer is colored green to recognize this day.

However, many of these religious practices were slowly adopted by the Irish people themselves, but they did so extensilvely to attract tourists.
