~ ♣ ~ Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Irish friends from everywhere! ~ ♣ ~
♣ Are you wearing green today? An Irish saying holds that If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, then you’re lucky enough!
♣ On St. Patrick’s Day it seems that everyone is Irish. Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick, performed baptisms and founded churches and schools where he taught about the Trinity and converted his countrymen to Christianity. When he died on this date in 461, Christians took a break in Lent to celebrate the saint’s life, to renew themselves spiritually and to offer prayers for missionaries worldwide. Nowadays, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with parades and fireworks, dances and parties, drinking Irish beer and whiskey and wearing green. ♣
