St. Patrick’s Day was officially declared as national holidays around the 17th century, and gradually became a holiday symbolizing the cultures of Ireland.
There are many legends related to St. Patrick. One of them is St. Patrick’s ability to bring people back to life. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is also credited with expelling all the snakes from Ireland, and today, not a single snake can be found there. But the true meaning of the casting away of all snakes runs much deeper. It can be said, Snake is a solid metaphor for the serpent of paganism.
It is said that St. Patrick was traveling and met a number of Irish chieftains along a meadow. The tribal leaders were curious about the Trinity and asked St. Patrick for an explanation. So he bent down, picked a shamrock, and showed it to them, and explained how the three leaves are part of the one plant, and how similarly the three Persons, Father, Son, and Spirit, are part of one Supreme Being.
So far, on St. Patrick’s Day every year, the Irish community has often dressed in green with three leaves of grass tree to commemorate this legend. Shamrock also becomes a symbol of faith, hope, and the emerging buds emerge stabbed by Ireland. Three clover leaf is genius Beans, soft-bodied, live for around a year.
