Laughter Party Ideas Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration in Ireland

Having a Fun and Laughter Filled Saint Patrick’s Day. 

try this out Laughter Party Ideas Saint Patrick's Day Celebration in IrelandThe Legends and Celebrations of Ireland – Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious feast festival of Catholic Christians having its roots in Ireland (Hibernia)…

With the happy celebrations gaining significance in other countries, particularly America and Britain.

Just like St. Valentines Day (14th February) celebrates all things related to love and romance…

Saint Patrick’s Day (17th March) commemorates the demise of the revered patronized Irish Saint Patrick.

 

So, what is the legend behind St. Patrick which led to the association of a festival in his name..

And how is the day celebrated?

Let us find out with our quick condensed timeline below:

 

The Saint Patrick’s Day Story Goes Like This…

Originally born (in later half of fourth century) to Roman parents in Scotland (Caledonia)…

or (Britannia) Roman England (there are conflicting opinions regarding the place of birth)…

 

“He was previously known by the name Maewyn Succat.

 

  1. He was given a Romanicized name Patricius leading to him being known as Patrick.
  2. Patrick was originally a pagan ( a non-believer of Christianity ).
  3. During his childhood, he was kidnapped and sold as a slave to the Celtic Druids who then ruled Ireland.
  4. It was during that stage of life that his attitude and beliefs towards God started changing.
  5. After six years, he escaped from slavery when he dreamt of God giving him instructions for the same.
  6. He was taught priesthood in France.
  7. When he became a bishop, he again dreamt of Irish people calling him and requiring his services.
  8. So, he returned to Ireland with firm belief of converting pagans to Christians.
  9. Despite being arrested by the Celtic Druids several times, he always managed to escape and was not deterred.
  10. He actively baptized and preached Christianity.
  11. He even used diplomacy like gifting people in kinglets and gifting lawgivers.
  12. For 20 years he had traveled throughout Ireland, establishing monasteries across the country.
  13. He also set up schools and churches which would aid him in his conversion.

 

How is The Feast Day of Saint Patrick Celebrated in Ireland?

As a part of the celebration, many Irish people wear a bunch of shamrock on their lapels or caps on St. Patrick’s Day…

while children wear tricolored (green, white and orange) badges.

Girls traditionally wore green ribbons in their hair (many still do).

 

A three-leafed Shamrock clover was used by St. Patrick to represent the holy trinity, like father, son and holy spirit…

 

“Also shamrock was considered lucky by Irish people.

 

The shamrock was also used by the Irish as a mark of nationalism when the English invaded Celtic Ireland.

Thus a shamrock is given lot of reverence in Ireland.

 

Leprechauns or Irish Fairy Folk (little people) are Associated With the St. Patrick’s Day Festival.

In Irish mythology, a leprechaun is a type of elf said to inhabit the island of Ireland and filled with mischievous shenanigans (activities of a playful fun and laughter)…

 

“Couldn’t this describe what happens in a laughter yoga session for sure?

 

In recent times, the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Dublin have been extended to a week-long event called St. Patrick’s Festival…

encompassing a spectacular fireworks display (Skyfest), open-air music, street theater and the traditional parade.

 

Saint Patrick’s Day is Also Celebrated Worldwide by The Irish and Those of Irish Descent.

A major parade takes place in Dublin and in most other Irish towns and villages.

The three largest parades of recent years have been held in Dublin, New York and Birmingham England.

Parades also take place in other centers, London, Paris, Rome, Moscow, Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore and throughout the Americas.

In the United States, St. Patrick’s Day would not be St. Patrick’s Day unless the Chicago River is dyed green.

 

Saint Patrick's Day is Also Celebrated Worldwide by The Irish

Also, it should be known that St. Paddy’s Day has little religious or historical significance.

Established in Boston in 1737, it is essentially a time to put on a “Kiss Me I’m Irish” button…

and parade drunken through the streets singing a mangled version of “Danny Boy” in celebration…

of one’s real or imagined Irish ancestry.

 

Thus in a nutshell, it can be seen that the legends revolving around St. Patrick have been inseparably combined with the facts.

The day invariably evokes the “I am Irish” sentiments along with patronizing St. Patrick for his services towards Ireland.

And together they have helped us know much about the Saint and the spirit behind the celebration of the day.
