Saint Patrick’S Day Saint Patrick’S Day Presentation Transcript

  • Saint Patrick’s Day By Anna Solà
  • St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in March, 17th. St Patrick is known as the patron saint of Ireland. Patrick was born in 4th century AD. His real name was Maewyn Succat.
  • One day a band of pirates kidnapped him and sold him as a slave in Ireland. He was there for 6 years. Finally, he escaped and went to Britain and also to France. There he studied to become a bishop.
  • There are many legends associated with St Patrick. It is said that he used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the concept of the Trinity, which refers to the combination of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • Saint Patrick is also known for driving the snakes out from Ireland.
  • St. Patrick died on March 17, AD 461. That day has been commemorated as St. Patrick's Day
  • The leprechaun, a Celtic fairy, is the symbol for this holiday. He looks like a small, old man like a shoemaker, with a cocked hat and a leather apron.
  • Leprechauns are unfriendly. They have a hidden pot of gold. If caught, he can be forced to reveal the place of his treasure, but the captor must keep their eyes on him every second. If the captor's eyes leave the leprechaun, he vanishes.
