  • Slide 1 - St. Patrick’s Day
  • Slide 2 - About St. Patrick's Day St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated each year on March 17th. St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is one of Christianity's most widely known figures. But for all his celebrity, his life remains somewhat of a mystery. Saint Patrick was important because he established 300 churches in Ireland and increased the popularity of Christianity. The Chicago River has been dyed green every year since 1962.
  • Slide 3 - History of the St. Patrick's Day Holiday The first St. Patrick's Day parade took place not in Ireland, but in the United States. Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York City on March 17, 1762. Along with their music, the parade helped the soldiers to reconnect with their Irish roots, as well as fellow Irishmen serving in the English army.
  • Slide 4 - The Leprechaun The original Irish name for these figures of folklore is "lobaircin," meaning "small-bodied fellow.“ Belief in leprechauns probably stems from Celtic belief in fairies, tiny men and women who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil. In Celtic folktales, leprechauns were cranky souls, responsible for mending the shoes of the other fairies. Though only minor figures in Celtic folklore, leprechauns were known for their trickery, which they often used to protect their much-fabled treasure.
  • Slide 5 - St. Patrick’s Day Symbols The Celtic Cross – a sun (from the Celts) super-imposed on a cross (from the Christians) The shamrock, or “seamroy,” symbolizes the rebirth of spring. It was later adopted as a symbol of Irish nationalism. The leprechaun, or “lobaircin” was a cranky, “small-bodied fellow” of Celtic folklore, given its “cute” features and popularized in the United States by Walt Disney. Leaf Clover – Four leaf clovers are very hard to find. If you find one you will have good luck!
  • Slide 6 - St. Patrick’s Day Symbols Green – People wear green on St. Patrick's day because green is the color of Shamrocks and spring. If you are not wearing green, you will be pinched! St. Patrick never drove snakes from Ireland; the story is a metaphor for driving paganism from the island. The traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage has been modified in the United States. Irish bacon has been replaced with corned beef for the annual feast.
