Happy St. Patricks Day!!!
Today is the day when St. Patrick is honored. This feast day has turned into a day for partying and merry-making but its origins are based in christianity. St. Patrick was a missionary in Ireland. He converted the Irish to christianity. It has been said he drove the snakes from Ireland. Since experts believe that snakes have never been native to Ireland the theory is that the snakes are a metaphor for paganism. Maybe snakes could be representative of the devil from the Garden of Eden? Anyway, go here to read about the man and the history of St. Patricks Day!
